Lily Austin LAW '20
Hometown: Springfield, PA (Delaware County)
Academic Interests: Employment/Labor Law
Undergraduate School: Swarthmore College
My Favorite Thing About Temple Law: Finding a community of people who are supportive and passionate about using the law to further the pursuit of justice.
Fun Fact: Customarily lazy when it comes to executing complicated Halloween costumes, a true Jim Halpert, 1L doctrinal material provided Lily with a perfect opportunity to participate in the custom of wearing costumes to class. Judge Learned Hand was an easy costume to create.
Hailing from outside of Philadelphia, Lily completed her undergrad degree at Swarthmore College and then spent two years before law school working in the farmworker unit of Legal Aid of North Carolina. She chose Temple Law because of its many experiential opportunities, dedicated faculty, and ties to social justice work in Philadelphia and beyond.
