Name: Calyn Hadlock

Place of Work: Forootan Law

What is your practice area? Currently working on labor and employment law cases, but as I am still in law school, I am unsure what my official practice area will be post-grad.

Fun Fact about me: I am a second degree black belt in karate, and French is my second language.

Philanthropic interests: While at UCI, I’ve worked with the ACLU on various first amendment cases; I’ve also worked on cases for tenant advocacy groups. 

Recent Professional Accomplishment: I drafted my first mediation brief, which helped the firm secure a mediation settlement twice as large as expected. I was also recently offered employment with Chancellor’s Professor Michele Goodwin as Professor Goodwin’s Research Assistant. 

Favorite part about OCWLA: Mixers, Networking, exciting conversations about new developments in law. 

Anything else you would like OCWLA Members to know about you: I am an avid student of constitutional law and will be working with the Appellate Litigation Clinic at UCI Law on an appeals case involving questions of state constitutional law next year. I am a 3L at UCI law and I am earnestly looking forward to graduation and passing the bar. As much as I’ve enjoyed my time at UCI, I am anxious to finally embark on my career journey.
