Entrepreneurship & Business Law Practicum

Student Practicum Director: Nathan Cowper

A local, Cowper grew up in Laramie where he was inspired to earn a law degree by two aunts that are both College of Law alumnae. He attended the University of Wyoming for his undergraduate degree, which he earned in English in 2017. Prior to attending law school, he worked as a research assistant for the late Professor John M. Burman, who also inspired him to pursue a career in law.

While in law school, Nathan has cultivated his interests in the law and gained valuable work experience. He has served as an extern with the Laramie City Attorney’s Office, and spent the summer of 2020 working for the Firearms Policy Coalition, a non-profit, non-partisan organization advocating for individual liberty and important constitutional rights.

He was recently selected to the editorial board of the Harvard Journal of Law and Policy’s Thirty-Ninth Annual Federalist Society National Student Symposium Issue, and has put his research abilities to task, working on a regulatory project for an energy start-up regarding the extraction of sour gas from crude oil.

Following law school, Cowper plans to work as an advocate of individual liberties, especially those protected by the 2nd amendment.
