Professor of Law
Western State University School of Law
2021 has been an especially busy year for Tania Shah. In June she published the book, The Ultimate Guide to the Uniform Bar Exam, which was co-written with Melissa Hale and Antonia Miceli. This thorough guide provides a “one stop shop” for all things UBE and covers everything from the basics of what is tested on the UBE to how to maximize scores on each section of the exam. She was also recently promoted to Director of the Academic Success Program at Western State College of Law. However, these accomplishments are just the tip of the iceberg.
Tania is vastly organized and high energy, which allows her to work on a variety of interesting projects simultaneously. In addition to teaching at Western State, Tania is a legal instructor in the Master of Legal Studies Program at Washington University School of Law. Tania also teaches for the Law Division of Sponsors for Educational Opportunity, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing supplemental educational and career support to incoming Ivy League law students from underserved communities.
Tania is a successful serial entrepreneur. Tania owns LawTutors, LLC (a legal education company), Shah Law, LLC (a business law firm,) and is co-owner of In The Know Legal (a legal template company for women-owned businesses). Tania was recently featured in Boston Business Journal for her unique approach to business law for women entrepreneurs, and was noted as one of the Top 100 Attorneys for 2020, all while working full time in academia.
Tania was born and raised in Southern California, where she currently resides with her beloved rescue dog, Toothless Johnny. In her spare time, she loves to dance to 80’s and 90’s hip-hop.
