Erin Lloyd is the Assistant Dean of the Center for Career Development at the University of Washington School of Law. Before joining UW Law, Erin spent the previous ten years in private practice in New York, building a successful partnership and deep roots in the legal community there, and teaching as an adjunct at several New York City law schools.
As a founding partner at Lloyd Patel LLP, Erin focused her litigation practice on representing employees who had suffered discrimination, harassment, wage theft and other abuses in the workplace. She also handled commercial litigation and transactional matters, advising small and growing businesses. Erin represented clients in both state and federal court, in mediation and arbitration, before administrative bodies, and in appeals before both the First and Second Department Appellate Divisions in New York. While building her private practice, Erin simultaneously taught as an adjunct professor, focusing her academic work on legal writing, essential analytical and lawyering skills, and professional ethics.
Prior to launching her private practice, Erin spent nearly six years clerking for judges in New York County Supreme Court in Manhattan, first in a general civil trial court and later in the specialized Commercial Division.
Erin earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Women’s Studies from Portland State University and a J.D. from the City University of New York School of Law.
