Cay Edwards worked four jobs during her first year of law school. She was a clerk for District Court Judge Stephen R. Bough and a summer intern for Foster Wallace in Kansas City for six weeks at the same time. After those six weeks, she worked as a research assistant for Equal Housing Opportunities Counsel in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
And last summer, she interned at Capes Sokol in the Clayton neighborhood of St. Louis as part of its 2021 Summer Associate Class before the firm asked her to continue clerking this year during her third year of law school.
She continues to clerk for Capes Sokol while working with the university’s Civil Rights Mediation Clinic run by law professor Karen Tokarz.
Cay hopes to stay in St. Louis after she graduates next year.
“I love St. Louis. I think it’s the best city on the planet,” Cay said. “But there’s a lot of work to be done, and I feel like some girl power in the law can do it.”
