Who We Are

Sarah Schrup, Appellate Advocacy Center Director

Sarah Schrup is the founder and director of Northwestern's Appellate Advocacy Center, which includes the Federal Appellate Clinic and the Supreme Court Clinic. She loves teaching law students and enjoys being able to innovate in her curriculum, her legal practice, and in the policies underlying our criminal justice system. "Running this program allows me to become a better teacher, scholar, and lawyer, and it further allows me to address the broader underlying ills that make criminal appellate practice so challenging these days." Schrup received the Dean's Teaching Award in the 2007 academic year, and has received honorable mentions during the 2005, 2006, and 2010 academic years.
