Before joining the Women’s Employment Rights Clinic at Golden Gate University, Professor Raven spent nearly a decade in the Alameda County Public Defender's Office. She defended both felony and misdemeanor clients at every stage of the criminal process, litigating hundreds of evidentiary motions and ten jury trials to verdict. Professor Raven has a longstanding commitment to fighting for economic justice. Beyond the work defending low-income clients at the Public Defender’s Office, Professor Raven spent the decade prior advancing the rights of workers and immigrants in a variety of settings, from organizing with janitors and cafeteria workers for fair wages in Palo Alto, to providing humanitarian aid to migrants crossing the border in the remote Arizona desert, to coordinating a coalition of immigrant rights groups and volunteering through Pride at Work (an AFL-CIO affiliate) in San Francisco. Professor Raven earned her J.D. from UCLA School of Law where she specialized in Critical Race Studies and Public Interest Law and Policy and her B.A. from Stanford University.
