Jackson, Tenn., native Sarah Katherine Liles moved to Jackson, Miss., in 2006 to attend law school at Mississippi College after graduating summa cum laude from Mississippi State University. During her third year, she interned and was later hired as a law clerk under Chancellors Denise Owens and Patricia Wise in the Hinds County Chancery Court.
“Working at court was always entertaining and my favorite day at work was being sworn in by Judge Wise in front of my family and the court staff. There was hardly a dry eye in the courtroom,” Liles says. Among other responsibilities, Liles had the opportunity to present research in Jim Hood v. Microsoft Inc.
While at MSU, Liles was vice-president of the Delta Gamma Sorority, was an MSU Roadrunner and Bulldog athletic recruiter and was active in the Pi Sigma Alpha and Phi Kappa Phi honor societies. At MC, she was on the Dean’s List, received the school’s Pro Bono Award and was a member of the Christian Legal Society.
Mississippi’s best kept secret: The people. Southern hospitality is not really a secret, but to have the first-hand experience of how nice and giving the people here are truly is wonderful.
