Following graduation, Sally worked as an analyst at a litigation firm with a focus on securities fraud, government enforcement defense, international judgment enforcement, and international arbitration. Briefly before law school, she worked in the legal department at Forever 21 under the privacy and marketing team and gleaned insights into the in-house practice. At Berkeley, she’s been working as a student researcher for the Survivor Advocacy Project, spearheading the research and drafting of the writ of administrative mandamus template for Title IX proceedings. This summer, she served as a law clerk at the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles and worked with survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking in various stages of trial and administrative hearings. Through her experience at the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, Sally discovered a passion for serving victims of gender-based violence and other marginalized communities. She sees herself growing as an advocate for these vulnerable groups.
