Karin to present paper at UCLA Law conference


November 04, 2010

Associate clinical professor Marcy Karin of the Sandra Day O’Conner College of Law and Director of the Civil Justice Clinic’s Work-Life Policy Unit, will present a paper at the Seventh International Conference on Clinical Legal Education and Scholarship, on Saturday, Nov. 6, in Lake Arrowhead, Calif.

The title of Karin’s article, which she co-authored with Robin Runge, an Assistant Professor at the University of North Dakota School of Law, is “Toward Integrated Law Clinics that Train Social Change Advocates.” Runge will join Karin at the conference, which is hosted by the UCLA School of Law and the University of London Institute of Advanced Legal Studies.

The conference involves clinical scholars and educators from the United States and abroad who will explore ideas about clinical education that go beyond the traditional paradigm of one law student-one client-one supervisor.

Karin supervises and instructs student attorneys working on behalf of clients in the Civil Justice Clinic. 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.
