Staff Attorney, Civil Justice Practice
Lauren Price joined the Civil Justice Practice at Brooklyn Defender Services in August of 2016. She graduated from Brooklyn Law School in 2015. Before joining BDS, as a member of Brooklyn Law School’s Public Interest Public Service Fellowship program, Lauren worked for two years in the Special Litigation Unit of the New York Legal Assistance Group. In this capacity, she contributed to class actions and other cases with potential to redress systemic harms suffered by low-income people in New York City, including challenges to deprivations of Medicaid-funded services and to special education violations.
As a law student, Lauren interned with the Legal Aid Society’s Brooklyn Neighborhood Office Housing Unit, South Brooklyn Legal Service’s Elder Law Unit, and the Bronx Defender’s Civil Action Practice, where she found her passion for working at the intersection of civil litigation and criminal collateral consequences.
During her time at Brooklyn Law School, Lauren was an Edward V. Sparer Public Interest Fellow and chaired the student chapters of the National Lawyers Guild and the Law Students for Reproductive Justice, establishing a pro-bono project focusing on clinic access. Lauren received her undergraduate degree from Boston University.
