Karin moderated a panel on March 23 which explored lessons that can be learned from work-life efforts under way around the world. Panelists analyzed how public policy is, and could be, used to promote flexible work arrangements and other workplace flexibility programs in Australia, China, India, Brazil, Russia, Sweden and the United States. Experts from these countries, Boston College and Georgetown University Law Center joined Karin on the panel, "International Perspectives on Work Life."

Her research interests include workplace law, policy, and practice, civil justice and litigation, and women's legal history. Karin is an active member of the national work-life law and policy community. She is regularly invited to speak about the role of thoughtful public policy in this area, and is listed in the Sloan Network's Who's Who in Work and Family.
