Introducing Me

Hello Loyola! My name is Keran and I am a 1L in the JD program. I am so excited to be writing my first post for Jury of Peers and introducing myself to the wonderful LLS community. I hope that this post and all my future posts will help you get to know Loyola and the life of a law student in their first year. Prior to attending Loyola, I worked in various sectors of the field of education, including the intersection of law and education. I got my master’s in higher education from Columbia University and my bachelor’s in sociology and music industry from UCLA. I chose to attend law school to learn the ways in which the legal world fits into education policy and higher learning. Now that I am halfway through my first semester, I can actually see myself working in so many different areas of law, a reality I never saw as a possibility prior to attending law school. With that being said, don’t worry if you don’t have it figured out! Law school is the perfect place to find out who you are and where you want to go.

Other than my professional endeavors, I have been a musician my whole life. I graduated from a music school in 2015 and have played violin for 15 years. I also taught myself how to play the guitar. I love to sing and write music, as well. Music is a part of who I am regardless of the career I choose. It is my one true passion that has never wavered. I view music as my safe haven away from all of the day-to-day stressors of life.

Thank you for visiting my new blog! I am so excited to share my first-year experiences with all of you!
