Farah Z. Alkayed

Associate

Farah Alkayed was born in Jordan, and raised in the Middle East while spending her summers in the US. Farah had a keen and early interest in law, which led her to pursue an undergraduate degree in law at the University of Jordan during which she participated in the Willem C. Vis. International Arbitration Moot Court, and graduated second in the class of January 2010. Farah later relocated to Los Angeles and enrolled at the University Of Southern California Gould School Of Law where she earned an LLM degree in 2011 with a focus on business law classes. After her masters, Farah clerked at the Office of the California Attorney General working under the Civil Division Chief Assistant.

Before enrolling at Indiana University Maurer School of Law and earning her Juris Doctorate Degree in May 2016, Farah worked in the litigation department of a top tier law firm in Jordan handling commercial litigation matters. At Maurer, Farah’s interest in litigation was anchored further as she participated in the Sherman Minton Moot Court Competition, and a year later served on the Competition’s Board as an Executive Competition Coordinator while also working at Indiana University Student Legal Services managing civil litigation and minor criminal matters for two years. Farah’s commitment to the Maurer community was strong where she served as a JD Affiliate for the Center for Constitutional Democracy, the Vice President of the Business Law Society and Founder and President of the Middle Eastern Law Students Association.

To gain sufficient exposure to transactional matters, Farah clerked at Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen and Loewy handling business immigration matters after her first year in law school, and worked as a summer associate at Cisco Systems Inc. after her second year tackling transactional matters in various fields including intellectual property, employment law as well as national security and health care regulations.

Farah sat for the California State Bar in July 2016, and was admitted in December 2016, and prior to joining WPDS she worked for a boutique litigation firm in Downtown Los Angeles handling commercial litigation matters.
