Kate Fetrow / Cochran Fellow

Kate jointed NSB as a Cochran Fellow in 2019. While at Stanford Law School, Kate participated in the Supreme Court Litigation Clinic, where she worked on several briefs before the United State Supreme Court, including the merits brief on behalf of the Petitioner in Manuel v. City of Joliet, 137 S.Ct. 911 (2017), in which the Supreme Court held that claims for malicious prosecution can be brought under the Fourth Amendment. She also gained experience on a wide range of civil rights and civil litigation issues by working as a researcher for several professors, leading several student groups focused on issues of social justice, publishing a note in the Stanford Law Review arguing for expanded Fourteenth Amendment rights, and serving as a teaching assistant for a course on Federal Courts. Additionally, she gained litigation experience through internships and externships with the ACLU and through pro bono criminal work.
