Karin awarded community service award
Associate Clinical Professor
, Director of the Work-Life Policy Unit and the Civil Justice Clinic at the College of Law, was awarded a $4,000 Sustained Community Service Award from the Woodside Foundation.
The funds will be dedicated to Karin’s work with the Civil Justice Clinic, which educates and assists local service members and their families with legal needs related to employment, consumer, and housing matters. In addition to direct representation, the Clinic works to raise awareness about the unique needs of this population. Last year, the Clinic held a Veterans Day conference to educate the community about core civil legal issues that military families may face.
“The recognition by the Woodside Foundation will help the Civil Justice Clinic create materials and host additional public education events to train law students, lawyers, and military families about legal protections that serve those that serve us,” Karin said. “I am very thankful for this recognition and support of our work with military families.”
Karin’s research interests include workplace law, policy and practice, civil justice for military families and survivors of domestic violence, and women’s legal history. She 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.
The Woodside Community Foundation, which began in 1953, awards individuals and projects that aim to enhance a community’s welfare, education or children’s activities.
