Hi! My name is Rhavean King, and I am a second-year law student at the University of Kansas School of Law. I graduated from the University of Kansas with a bachelor's in political science, but I’m a Southern girl as I was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. Originally, I came to Kansas on a track-and-field scholarship, and last year I finished my final year of eligibility on the track-and-field team. Talk about a busy schedule!

My interest in law goes back to my childhood. Looking at the world around me, I noticed how the law had an influence on every aspect of life and how it affects people’s lives differently. My childhood curiosity developed into a passion for law when I joined the mock trial team in high school. Being coached in the law by local practicing attorneys sparked my interest in studying law and being part of a community of people who advocate for justice for those who can’t do it for themselves.

I began looking into law school when I realized that I was going to graduate one year early. Having another year to compete as a collegiate athlete and having fallen in love with KU and the Lawrence community, I applied to KU Law. I wanted to stay with the excellent support system, resources, and friends that I had grown accustomed to in the past three years. KU’s rich history, legacy and tradition make me proud to say I’m a Jayhawk and more proud to now be a member of the small community of Jayhawks studying law in Green Hall.

Deciding to go to law school is a big decision. However, it is also one of the most rewarding experiences when you pick a law school that caters to your passions as you develop your legal education. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Rock Chalk, Jayhawk!
