Upon graduating from the City University of New York School of Law, she clerked for the Honorable Denny Chin of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and was a Skadden Fellow and Staff Attorney at the Asian American Legal Defense & Education Fund. Professor Lin publishes and speaks frequently to the media on topics including labor and employment law, particularly race, sex, and disability discrimination, and legal theory. Her scholarship has been published or is forthcoming in the NYU Law Review, Lewis & Clark Law Review, and the Harvard Journal of Law & Gender, among others.
