Lihan Harris

Lihan Harris is an Army veteran and a senior at Fayetteville State University. She is currently a member of the Alpha Phi Sigma Criminal Justice Honor Society, Pre-Law Society, National Association of Blacks in Criminal Justice, Pre-Law Scholar’s Program, Tau Sigma National Honor Society for transfer students, and LSAC Student Advisory Group. Harris is also on the Chancellor’s List and is part of the Hispanic Club and Campus Ministry. She serves as a volunteer at Manna Church Dream Center in Fayetteville. She is a Hispanic, single parent, first-generation college student, and an immigrant who moved to the United States from Puerto Rico more than a decade ago. In 2020, Harris made the best decision of her life and enrolled herself back in school. While she’d had some prior college education, as well as work and military experience, she had become a single parent with no village, so found the one thing she could do from home while being a full-time mom and enrolled at Fayetteville State University to start her new journey. Going back to school after a decade has been an extremely rewarding experience for Harris, who remembers how intimidated she felt on her first day back. In addition to worrying about being unable to catch up with all the new teaching methods, she worried about her ability to balance single parenthood with being a full-time student; but Harris’s desire to complete her education was bigger than her fears. Now a senior with a 4.0 GPA, Harris wants to utilize this same courage and determination to pursue a law degree after graduation. Her experience has shown her that she has the discipline, commitment, and determination to accomplish anything she sets her mind to, and as a result, she has grown as a student, as a woman, and as a leader. Harris’s experience has also given her a great amount of satisfaction. The long days and sleepless nights were worth it when she looks at how much she has gained from the journey, which has allowed her to teach her daughter that a person’s goals and dreams have no expiration date. Harris wants her daughter to know that no matter how long it takes, or how many times one starts over, they can accomplish anything they work hard enough for. Completing her degree will be one step towards Harris’s goal of becoming an attorney. She wants to use her education to make a difference in the criminal justice system and knows that a law degree will allow her to be part of a much-needed reform. She looks forward to becoming an attorney who contributes to change in a society that desperately needs it. Harris knows that completing a bachelor’s degree as well as a law degree will give her new opportunities in the workforce, which will allow her to provide her daughter with more possibilities and set a precedent for all single mothers. As a Hispanic woman, single parent, and veteran, she wants to inspire women of all backgrounds to never give up and set ambitious standards for themselves.

While serving on LSAC’s Student Advisory Group, she hopes to create a dialogue surrounding the lack of representation of Black women within the legal field and what can be done to ensure that those who share similar identities have an equal opportunity and the resources needed to enter — and, more importantly, be successful in — the field of law. Jackson is extremely grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this advisory group and is looking forward to contributing to making positive change and advocating for a more diverse future.

Kristen Juhan is currently in-house corporate counsel at a publicly traded, financial technology company. Her practice consists of bank regulatory, product structuring, privacy, and corporate governance work. Prior to that role, Juhan spent four years at Latham and Watkins, LLP, where she focused on capital markets and merger and acquisition projects for her clients. Juhan graduated from Tulane University Law School and had a career as a certified public accountant before deciding to attend law school. She has two young children and maintains that being a corporate lawyer is the easiest part of her day! Juhan hopes that this group will elevate the voices of aspiring, current, and graduated law students to reduce barriers and access to legal education, provide needed information and support about the law school onboarding process and student experience, and connect law students with practitioners so they have willing mentors to help them gain an understanding of the day jobs of different types of lawyers and various legal journeys. She envisions that these perspectives can translate into ideas and solutions that LSAC can use to design collaborative workshops, panels, materials, and programs that may better the path to legal education and will be valuable to the next generation of lawyers.
