Kathryn Evans is a rising third year law student at NYU School of Law and will obtain her J.D. in the Spring of 2020. At school NYU, Kathryn focuses her extracurricular energy on social justice and gender-related issues by serving as the Digital Executive Editor of NYU’s Review of Law and Social Change and as a board member for the Identity Documents Project, a student-run organization which helps transgender, gender non-conforming, and intersex individuals legally change their names and update their IDs. She recently began to cultivate her interest in employment law by taking a year-long Civil Litigation-Employment Law Clinic, where she worked with the Legal Aid Society’s Employment Law Unit on a variety of cases. As a vegan and animal lover, she also serves on the board of NYU's Student Animal Legal Defense Fund.
Kathryn graduated from Union College with a B.A. in Spanish and Classics. It was at Union that she became involved in social justice initiatives and decided that law school would best equip her to fight for the rights of others. There she founded the Union College Activist Network, served on the board of the school’s LGBTQ+ student group and administrative committee, worked in the Office of Multicultural Affairs, and helped to run the annual Next Step Social Justice Retreat.
