The Utah Center for Legal Inclusion is pleased to announce this year’s recipients for the Bar Review Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship.
The winners are: Laura Kyte, Alex Sanchez, Sarah Martinez, and Emily Walter. Photos and short biographies included below.
Laura Kyte is a recent BYU Law grad and has a B.A. in history from UVU. Before law school she worked for several years as a real estate agent and was a stay at home mom before that. She is now a single mom of two teenagers and decided to go to law school after a history professor, while completing her undergrad, encouraged her to think about it. Laura realized that early in childhood she had formed the belief that girls and “poor kids” like her didn’t become lawyers. Now she could see that a career in the law was an ideal intersection between a career and her interests in helping historically marginalized groups. Laura hopes to make sure little girls and kids from lower socioeconomic backgrounds don’t have to wait until they’re forty to realize they’d be great lawyers. After the bar, Laura has a Fellowship in the litigation division of the Utah Attorney General’s Office and then, starting August of 2022, will clerk for Judge Hagen of the Utah Court of Appeals.
