Biography

Caitlin Glass joins BU Law in January 2024 to direct the Antiracism and Community Lawyering Practicum in collaboration with the Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality, where she is a Non-Resident Fellow. The practicum trains students in the traditions of community and movement lawyering, and provides them with real-world opportunities to support social justice projects alongside community partners. She also leads an antiracism concentration within Professor Sean Kealy’s Legislative Policy & Drafting Clinic. Her areas of focus include criminal law and procedure, racial justice and the law, abolition theory and praxis, and participatory methods. Her work is forthcoming in the Northwestern Law Review and the Fordham Urban Law Journal.

Before joining the law school, Caitlin served as the Policy Program Director at the BU Center for Antiracist Research, where she co-authored amicus briefs, policy reports, and model legislation. She previously represented people in post-conviction proceedings, first as the Assistant Director of the NYU Law Clemency Resource Center and later as a staff attorney at the Office of the Appellate Defender. She was also a Marvin M. Karpatkin Fellow with the ACLU’s Racial Justice Program and she clerked for Judge Ann M. Donnelly in the Eastern District of New York.

Caitlin is a graduate of NYU School of Law, where she was on the Review of Law and Social Change and participated in the Racial Justice Clinic and the Equal Justice and Capital Defender Clinic. She received her undergraduate degree in Public Policy from the University of Chicago.
