Immediately prior to joining the full-time faculty, Professor Boonin served as Visiting Assistant Clinical Professor of Law in Suffolk’s Family Advocacy Clinic from January to June 2010. Professor Boonin received her undergraduate degree from Duke University and her JD from Harvard Law School.

After graduating from law school, Professor Boonin served as Law Clerk to the Honorable Justice Judith A. Cowin of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts. Professor Boonin then received a Skadden Fellowship to launch a medical-legal collaborative between the Legal Services Center of Harvard Law School and the Brigham and Women’s Hospital aimed at providing comprehensive legal services to low-income survivors of domestic violence. At the conclusion of her Skadden Fellowship, Professor Boonin was appointed Senior Clinical Fellow by Harvard Law School, where she taught family and domestic violence and continued to lead the health law collaboration she began as a Skadden Fellow.
