Meredith Schnug serves as a clinical associate professor and associate director of the Legal Aid Clinic. The clinic provides students an opportunity to develop their lawyering skills while promoting access to justice and providing high-quality legal services to low-income clients. In her role, Schnug supervises students in their casework and co-teaches the classroom component of the clinic, with the goal of developing purpose-minded and practice-ready attorneys. Schnug’s work with students emphasizes the value of high ethical standards and professionalism, practical problem-solving skills, and collaboration with community partners to provide clients with the best representation possible. Outside of the clinic, Schnug teaches Advanced Litigation, coordinates the law school's Pro Bono program and assists with coaching the mock trial team.
Prior to joining the faculty, Schnug served as a senior attorney with the Legal Aid Society of Southwest Ohio, where she supervised attorneys, paralegals and law clerks, represented victims of domestic violence in family law and immigration matters, and advocated for children in abuse, neglect and dependency cases. She also coordinated and presented at several community education forums. Schnug received her law degree from the Washington University in St. Louis School of Law, where she participated in the Civil Justice Clinic.
