IA2 board member, Melissa Brown (Shawnee), is featured in Comstock’s annual salute to extraordinary women. Ms. Brown is Director of legal clinics and professor of lawyering skills at McGeorge School of Law.
“Driven by a desire to help vulnerable members in the community, Brown studied political science at Chico State and earned her J.D. from Loyola Law School in 1983. While in law school, she interned at the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office’s elder abuse department, worked for a senior legal services program and served as a law clerk for the Social Security Administration Office of Hearings and Appeals (administrative law judges), which promoted her to staff attorney when she was admitted to the bar.”
