Dalton Downing, a second-year student at The University of Tulsa College of Law, editor-in-chief of the Tulsa Law Review and a Latham & Watkins Diversity Scholar, will spend the summer working in the firm’s Washington, D.C. office. His work will focus on complex commercial litigation, private equity finance and mergers and acquisitions. This fall, he will extern with Judge Stephanie Seymour of the U.S. Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Raised on a working cattle ranch in northeastern Oklahoma, he attended Oklahoma State University on a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. While earning his B.S. in agribusiness, he worked for the foundation, assisting low-income high school students with scholarship and college applications. He graduated with distinctions as a Senior of Significance.
“For students on the fence about where to attend law school, I invite you to come and join us for a morning or afternoon and sit in on a class,” said Downing. “You’ll see we form personal relationships with our professors, and these are invaluable.”
