Katherine Rane: Serving the Needy

Katherine Rane (’20) proactively serves people in need. While volunteering for Timpanogos Legal Center she was made acutely aware of the economic disparity that existed in Utah County when visiting cheap apartment buildings and Hispanic resource centers. This touched her heart and led her to the Community Legal Clinic where she has “worked with indigent clients from all walks of life.”


With a spark lit within her, Katherine sought opportunities to find diversity–joining the Black Law Student Association, helping members of Provo’s Hispanic community, and attending the Genesis group. Additionally, she uses her talents as a communicator to reach people. Beyond acting as the associate editor of the BYU Law Review, Katherine publishes a blog in English and Spanish detailing her interactions with people on the periphery and the lessons she’s learned. Within BYU Law, she is a research and teaching assistant to three professors and worked as a law clerk at Melaleuca, Inc., last summer.
