Kayla Frederickson (JD ’16) to clerk for North Carolina Court of Appeals

Kayla Frederickson (JD ’16) has accepted a judicial clerkship with the Honorable Richard Diet  (JD ’02) of the North Carolina Court of Appeals.  Frederickson’s clerkship will begin in September 2016, after she completes her third year of law school and takes the North Carolina Bar Exam.
Frederickson’s activities at Wake Forest Law have included serving as the Notes and Comments Editor for the Journal of Business and Intellectual Property Law, earning membership on the Moot Court Board, and working as a teaching assistant for Executive Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Tim Davis.

Between law school years, she was a summer law clerk with Patrick, Harper & Dixon, LLP in Hickory, North Carolina, and a summer intern with the Guilford County Public Defender’s Office in High Point, North Carolina.

Before law school, Frederickson attended Saint Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, where she graduated in 2011 with a bachelor of arts in music.  Between college and law school, Frederickson’s work experience included being an assistant store manager for a Janie and Jack children’s clothing retail location in Connecticut.

The Journal of Business and Intellectual Property Law publishes four issues during the year, and is a student run organization. The topics discussed relate to intellectual property law and business law, and the Journal strives to find the interconnection between these two fields. The JBIPL publishes legal scholarship written by faculty, practitioners and students, and every spring, a symposium is sponsored by the Journal.

The Moot Court Board seeks to assist students in their development of effective appellate advocacy skills. Moot Court creates opportunities for students to develop effective legal research skills, draft persuasive appellate briefs and deliver oral arguments through their participation in various intramural and interscholastic appellate advocacy competitions.
