Alexandra Smith is a Clinical Teaching Fellow for the Mediation Clinic for Families and the Legal Data and Design Clinic. Prior to joining the UB faculty, she worked as the Network Manager of the Victim Legal Network of DC (VLNDC) – a coordinated entry and referral system composed of over 20 legal service providers in the District of Columbia. There, Ms. Smith designed tech-facilitated, cooperative infrastructure to improve access to justice for crime victims through the removal of barriers in the legal services ecosystem. After VLNDC launched, Ms. Smith consulted on similar access-to-justice solutions emerging statewide in Hawaii, Ohio, and Oregon.
Ms. Smith previously worked as an associate at Locke Lord LLP in Austin, Texas. While in law school, Ms. Smith co-founded and programmed an online platform for open student-to-student exchange that was accepted into Start-Up Chile, an accelerator program for new technology applications.
