After graduating from Temple University Law School in 1986, Ellen served as a Philadelphia Assistant District Attorney, where she specialized in the prosecution of crimes of domestic violence.
Former Pittsburgh Municipal Judge Irene Clark’s (nee McLaughlin) law school motto, “Law in the service of human needs,” connected at her core and set Irene on a career focused in public interest law. After earning a B.S. degree in economics from the highly regarded University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School in 1984, Irene returned to the New York neighborhood where she grew up and enrolled in the newly founded CUNY School of Law at Queens College, which is, according to the New York Times, “a school that trains the public’s lawyers.”
