Niki Khoshzamir Moore is the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of 3L+ Law Prep. Niki is a Skills Professor at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law where she created and has been co-teaching a course titled The Junior Attorney: Expectations, Responsibilities and Realities since Fall 2011.
Niki has been recognized as one of the top “40 under 40″ professionals by Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal. A litigator for six years at the global firm of Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr (WilmerHale), Niki focused her practice on intellectual property litigation, high stakes commercial disputes, and trade sanctions compliance and licensing. She represented clients throughout the United States during all phases of litigation, including trial. As the recipient of the prestigious Pickering Fellowship, Niki also spent six months at the San Francisco-based civil rights organization, the Asian Law Caucus, where she concentrated her work on post 9/11 civil rights issues and published a legal guide on the effects of U.S. economic sanctions on U.S. citizens and corporations. Prior to WilmerHale, Niki also worked and summered at the international law firms of Kirkland & Ellis and Quinn Emanuel.
Niki has incorporated community service and pro bono throughout her legal practice. She currently serves on the national advisory board of the Iranian American Bar Association (IABA), and is the former president of the Northern California Chapter, which she founded in 2006 and grew to one of the largest and most active chapters of the organization. Niki received the Minority Bar Coalition’s Unity Award for her work with the IABA. Her pro bono matters have included federal habeas corpus appeals and immigration U-Visa matters. For several years, she was also a volunteer Citizen Teacher in Citizen Schools’ after-school mock trial program.
In her different roles – professor, attorney, and board member – Niki has mentored many new attorneys, law students, and college students on a variety of issues, including career planning, excelling in the workplace, networking, conflict resolution, client relations and business development. She has always had a keen interest in diversity and associate satisfaction issues, and has served on organizational committees addressing both matters.
Niki received her law degree from Berkeley Law (2006), and holds an undergraduate degree in Biology, summa cum laude, from Texas Southern University. Prior to her legal career, she was a research assistant at the MD Anderson Cancer Center and the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center.
