More Information:

David Akere joined LPHS in 2022. In 2021, David received his J.D. from the UCLA School of Law. During his time there, David led a variety of student groups, notably as the President of the school’s Sports Law Federation, as Social Executive of the Black Law Students Association (BLSA), and as a Law Fellows Mentor. Prior to law school, David attended Georgetown University and received a B.A. in Government in 2018. While at Georgetown, David was a student athlete, twice holding the title of team captain of his NCAA Division I varsity football team.

David’s competitive edge has proven successful in collaboration with his love for challenging endeavors and knowledge of law throughout his career: In 2017, he united his unique experiences to work as a student intern for The Sports and Entertainment Group, where he drafted contracts, recruited national clients, and prepared opportunities for elite talent agents. In 2019, he interned as a Los Angeles County Public Defender representing marginalized juveniles in the criminal system. In 2019, he also worked as a legal extern with the UCLA Athletics Legal Compliance Office where he researched and created compliance regulations and NIL proposals for over 800 Student Athletes.

David is also a fierce, promising litigator: prior to LPHS, he worked as an Associate with McDowell Hetherington in Houston, Texas. During his time with the firm, he represented clients in various complex commercial litigation matters pending in federal and state courts, recovered millions in dollars for his clients, and managed plaintiff dockets for large commercial corporations, ultimately litigating cases in court.

In his free time, David enjoys spending time with his family, playing sports, and traveling as he also speaks Spanish and Yoruba.
