Sydney Sears

Legal Intern

Sydney is a legal intern at Smith + Malek while she completes her final year of law school at the University of Idaho, College of Law. Sydney serves as the Chief Symposium Editor for the Idaho Law Review, and as the student representative for the University of Idaho Faculty Senate. She hopes that her practice will focus on healthcare, real estate, and business law.

Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, Sydney graduated from Boise State University in 2013 with degrees in accountancy and finance. She worked for Deloitte as an Audit Associate in Boise, before moving back to the Las Vegas area to join a custom software company. While there, she explored the intricacies of running a small technology company, that ultimately led to her passion for law. With her heart in Boise, she returned to attend law school in the fall of 2017.

In her free time, Sydney enjoys listening to live music, watching Las Vegas Golden Knights hockey, and spending time with her fiancé and their puppy, Olive. She also spends time volunteering with Make a Wish - Idaho, and serves as a board member for the BSU Honors College Alumni Association.
