Q&A: Visiting Assistant Professor Elizabeth Bentley

Elizabeth (“Betz”) Bentley recently joined Minnesota Law as a visiting assistant professor of law and the director of our new Civil Rights Appellate Clinic.  Her impressive legal background includes serving as a law clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, as well as clerking for two other federal judges. She also worked at Jones Day and served as special counsel to Senator Amy Klobuchar and the Senate Judiciary Committee during the confirmation of Ketanji Brown Jackson. 

"I am looking forward to connecting with students and helping them develop a love of the law and an understanding of its power," she says in a recent Q&A with Minnesota Law magazine.
