Prior to attending law school, Professor Day worked in political communications, serving as the deputy press secretary on the 2002 Massachusetts gubernatorial campaign of former Democratic National Committee Chairman Steve Grossman. As a law student, she worked as a student attorney in the Georgetown Domestic Violence Clinic. After graduation, she was a litigator in the Washington, DC office of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson, LLP. There, she continued to focus her pro bono work on representing low-income clients in domestic relations matters, including high-conflict child custody matters involving domestic violence and child sexual abuse. As a military spouse, Professor Day has a special interest in family law matters affecting service members and their families.
