Alexandra Harrington is a Lecturer in Law, Associate Research Scholar in Law, Tutor in Legal Studies, and Senior Liman Fellow in Residence at Yale Law School. Previously, she worked at the Connecticut Division of Public Defender Services in the Innocence Project/Post-Conviction Unit. She helped to shape and coordinate the Division’s representation of individuals who were sentenced as juveniles in adult court to lengthy prison terms. Her work grew out of a law school project with the Lowenstein International Human Rights Clinic advocating for fair sentencing and second-look review for these individuals. She received her J.D. in 2014 from Yale Law School where, in addition to the Lowenstein Clinic, she participated in the Capital Punishment Clinic and the Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project. She holds a B.A. from Vanderbilt University.
