Although Katie is new to Rutgers-Camden Law School this year, where she teaches Civil Procedure as well as employment-related subjects, she made a name for herself while at Penn where she was a Research Scholar and Lecturer in Law. She is already well-published, having appeared in the Minnesota Law Review, the Yale Law & Policy Review and the Administrative Law Review.
And she has already achieved distinction. A work-in-progress, Constitutional Colorblindness and the Family, was Honorable Mention in the AALS 2013 AALS Scholarly Papers Competition, where it was described by the selection committee as "saying something new and compelling about constitutional colorblindness."
Not to mention being recognized in Jotwell for her Minnesota piece. To borrow from myself last year in commenting on That’s Not Discrimination: American Beliefs and the Limits of Anti-Discrimination Law,
One might question the wisdom of a young, not-yet-on-the-market, scholar basically arguing that most of us in her field—including me—have been wrong in important ways. But wise or not,[the article] is a remarkable piece of research and exposition. She has an ability to deal with complicated issues in a lucid and spritely prose style. I almost enjoyed being informed how wrong I was!
Like our other recent guest blogger, Charlotte Garden, Katie is a strong new voice in the labor and employment wing of the academy, and I speak for Paul, Rick, Jeff, and Marcia in welcoming her to Workplace Prof.
