Sabrina is also the current Chair of the Association of American Law Schools Section on Legal Writing, Reasoning, and Research.
In this new role at her alma matter, Sabrina will oversee Suffolk’s bar review curriculum and co-curricular programs. She also will work with outside partners, such as Barbri, on matters related to bar preparation, and she will be responsible for analyzing relevant bar passage data and recommending changes to our bar preparation efforts. With her expertise in bar preparation and extensive teaching experience in our first year curriculum, Sabrina brings a unique faculty perspective to the law school’s efforts to maximize student readiness, especially as Massachusetts transitions to the Uniform Bar Exam next year. Sabrina will continue to serve as a Professor of Legal Writing; her director role will be in addition to her existing LPS responsibilities.
Professor DeFabritiis graduated, cum laude, from Suffolk University Law School and received her B.S., from Boston College. As a student, Professor DeFabritiis served as Vice President of the Moot Court Honor Board and the Journal of Trial & Appellate Advocacy. Additionally, she was a member of the Moot Court Tax Team, which won the National Competition in 2002. Before joining the faculty at Suffolk Law School, she clerked for the Justices of the Massachusetts Superior Court, and spent several years as an associate in the Boston office of Campbell Campbell Edwards & Conroy P.C., where she practiced in their advanced motions and appellate practice department.
