After earning her J.D. at Georgetown University Law Center in 2019, Julia practiced as a civil rights attorney with the ACLU of Washington in Seattle for three years. At the ACLU, Julia worked primarily on impact litigation pursuing economic justice in housing and juvenile legal systems. Her work included cases that challenged the criminalization of homelessness and poverty through policy advocacy and impact litigation. Julia wrote or contributed to the writing of over half a dozen amicus briefs to the Washington Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit. She also reviewed legislative bills related to civil rights and civil liberties, advocated for new court rule proposals that advanced race equity, and wrote two sections of a policy report on race and the juvenile legal system presented to the Washington Supreme Court.
As a Law Research, Instruction, and Liaison Librarian, Julia supports the Law Library’s research and reference services and teaches legal research to Cornell Law’s JD students, including in the Lawyering program. Julia also contributes to Law faculty liaison services; law materials selection; and outreach and instruction services in the Law Library.
