The Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs extends a warm welcome to Audrey Patten, who joined the Legal Services Center as a clinical fellow in 2015. Audrey is working on a new project to link clients from the Family and Domestic Violence Law Clinic with consumer law advocacy. Audrey’s practice is aimed at representing survivors of domestic violence in consumer law matters, including debt collection defense, access to housing, and bankruptcy. This project is an extension of the Passageway Health-Law Collaborative, which is the clinic’s ongoing medical-legal partnership with the Passageway program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and its affiliated community healthcare centers. Prior to her work at the Legal Services Center, Audrey was a staff attorney at Northeast Legal Aid, Inc. in Lowell, MA.
Audrey graduated from Emory University School of Law in 2012, where she was a managing editor of the Emory International Law Review and a student in the International Humanitarian Law Clinic, the Barton Juvenile Defender Clinic, and the Emory Supreme Court Advocacy Project. She was also Emory’s recipient of the Clinical Legal Education Association’s Outstanding Student Award. Audrey holds an M.A. in Regional Studies – East Asia from Harvard University and a B.A. in International Relations from Brown University.
