Caroline Guerra Wolf first came to Tulsa as a Spanish immersion kindergarten teacher in 2011 with Teach for America. She loved the city so much that she decided to stay in Tulsa for her graduate education and selected The University of Tulsa for law school.
Guerra Wolf is 2017’s TU Law valedictorian, and with a federal judicial externship with Judge Stephanie K. Seymour of the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals and an internship with U.S. District Court Judge John E. Dowdell under her belt, she has secured a two-year clerkship with Judge Dowdell. “I will be a judicial clerk which involves drafting orders, opinions and helping the judge with whatever needs to be done,” said Guerra Wolf. “This is a position that will open a lot of doors.”
Guerra Wolf plans to pursue a career in Indian and environmental law stating that the two quite often intertwine. During her time at law school, Guerra Wolf said she enjoyed the small class sizes and getting to know the professors, something that her friends at other schools did not experience.
While attending TU, Guerra Wolf earned the Oklahoma Bar Association Outstanding Student Award; the George & Jean Price Award for Legal Reasoning, Authorities, and Writing; and the CALI Awards in Legal Writing I, II, & III, Torts, Property, Evidence, Civil Procedure I & II, and Prof. Responsibility. She also served as a member of the Phi Delta Phi International Legal Honors Society, Council Oak Johnson Sontag Inn of Court and the Native American Law Student Association.
Prior to moving to Tulsa, Guerra Wolf graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a BA in Political Science and International Studies from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
