Tyler Laudick, a Wichita native, graduated from Wichita State University with a biomedical engineering degree before coming to Washburn University School of Law where he is in his third year.
He has been active with a variety of organizations while at Washburn: competitor in the Jessup Moot Court team where he was the top oralist; Notes Editor for the Washburn Law Journal; small group leader for the School of Law; judicial extern to the Hon. Angel D. Mitchell and clerk for the law firm of Tenopir and Huerter.
Presently he works for the United States District Court in Topeka while attending classes.
Tyler describes himself as “ . . . enthusiastic and motivated to continue learning and developing my skills so I can make a positive impact in the natural resources community,” and his references agree.
He acknowledged that his background in biomedical engineering may seem like a strange fit for the field of natural resource law but countered that by saying his past experiences have provided him with a comprehensive background of problem solving and analytics. “Moreover, I have learned to apply these talents I acquired to build and develop legal skills,” he went on to explain.
“For instance, my participation in the Washburn Law Journal has provided important legal writing and research opportunities. I want to use my education and experiences to tackle important issues surrounding natural resources.”
As Tyler describes it, his decision “to pursue a career that fulfills my desire to be a leader in my community as well as being able to apply the skills I acquired as an engineering major coincides with my passion for the law.” He plans to use all he learns to make a positive impact on the natural resources community.
