Cait Ahern teaches the practicum portion of UNLV’s Paralegal program. Ahern is a litigation paralegal responsible for drafting and responding to written discovery, serving subpoenas, and setting depositions. She also assists with motion work and trial preparation. These skills are valuable for paralegal students because they are found across almost all types of law.
Ahern graduated from University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a degree in English. Her studies concentrated on American literature, such as Revolutionary-era satirists, antebellum poets, and modernist novelists. Her focus on literary political criticism prompted an invitation to the Institute for Humane Studies 2017 Colloquium, “Tocqueville in Liberty,” which discussed Alexis de Tocqueville’s classic text analyzing the American political structure in the mid-1800s.
While at UNLV, Ahern was admitted into multiple honor societies—including Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society, Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society, and the National Society of Leadership and Success. Her academic achievements were attained while working full time as a bartender at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino.
Ahern’s experience with both literary analysis and customer service prepared her for a successful career in the legal field. Her education provides extensive writing practice and a unique way of analyzing legal issues. Her background in restaurant services aids in gaining a rapport with our clients.
An avid animal lover, Ahern volunteers through the Animal Foundation.
