Elizabeth Nichols, 1L Secretary
My name is Elizabeth Nichols and I’m running for the position of 1L Class Secretary for the 2021-2022 school year! As our class secretary, I would love to use my position to serve as a liaison between us students and our, what we can all evidently assume, phenomenal fellow 1L SBA members! Everyone in our class has exhibited such amazing potential in the legal field, and together with open, personable communication we can work together to push each other to our highest potential! Simply said, we’re better together, and I would be honored to help keep us all connected!
I chose Detroit Mercy because they have a powerful, simple motto: educating the complete lawyer. We aren’t a part of a hostile or close-minded community, we focus on not just learning the law but learning how to act justly in and out of the court room. Our 1L class brings a multitude of unique qualities and backgrounds together, and however different your experiences are from another classmate, it’s our differences that have shaped us and brought us here together!
If elected Secretary, I would take on the honor to use our differences as our strengths, and ensure an open path of communication between our class and our SBA members. We’ve all got a story to tell, individual and group goals we want to achieve over the next 3 years and beyond, and every single voice of our class deserves to be heard.
Before coming to Detroit Mercy Law, I studied Political Science with a focus in Pre-law studies, along with a minor in Law, Justice, and Public Policy. To keep it short, politics are my passion, and at this time, we have the most ample opportunity to create change in our society. Through public policy, laws, movements, even down to our everyday minuscule actions, we have the chance to make each and everyone on of our voices count, and nothing would make me more proud than to serve on our class board as secretary, as a voice to unite us, especially in times when some may feel they might have little to no voice… a voice for all.
