Harmeet Kaur was born and raised in Houston, Texas. As a daughter of immigrants, Harmeet has a deep understanding of the challenges many immigrant families face when they move to a new country, battling fear while hoping for a better future.
Prior to attending law school, Harmeet worked in an at-large Houston City Council office for two years where she was responsible for a constituency of over 400,000. Truly humbled by her experiences, Harmeet was convinced that a career in law, as an advocate for underrepresented men and women was her calling.
During her time at Thurgood Marshall School of Law, Harmeet served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Law Journal. She also gained practical legal experience as a member of the Criminal Legal Clinic and as a Research Assistant for the Innocence Project, where she investigated and researched over two dozen claims of innocence.
Harmeet’s experience in California includes her position as a Deputy District Attorney in San Mateo County where she gained in-court experience by producing evidence and witnesses at preliminary hearings as well as arguing and drafting a variety of pre-trial motions.
