I’m Nicholas, but please call me Nick! I grew up in Westwood, a quiet neighborhood in Los Angeles, CA, only a few minutes away from UCLA. I studied History at UC Santa Barbara, and was especially interested in legal history. At the same time, I became really passionate about public interest work and so I organized grassroots campaigns to combat corruption and improve American elections. The combination of both my academic and activist interests led me to law school — and by extension to this class!
