DEF Spotlight: 2020 Summer Associate Tyrra Walker

Law School: Georgia State University College of Law 

Undergrad: Spelman College

Field(s) of Interest: Litigation


Is there anyone who influenced you to become a lawyer?

While at Spelman College, I attended an event on campus hosted by the Georgia Association of Black Women Attorneys ("GABWA"). After listening to many successful African-American, female lawyers and judges speak so candidly and passionately about the profession, any doubts that I previously had disappeared. I knew that this was the career for me.

What are some activities you do when you are not studying or working?

When I am not studying or working, I enjoy practicing hot yoga and watching movies. My favorite movie genres are action, psychological thriller, and documentary films. 

If you were an item in a happy meal, what would you be and why? 

If I were any item in a happy meal, I would certainly be the signature Happy Meal box because you can always count on it to hold the meal together no matter the surrounding environment or what is inside.
