Assistant for Prof. Smith

Annie Smith is an assistant professor of law and directs the law school's Civil Clinic. Prior to joining the University of Arkansas faculty, Professor Smith served as a visiting associate professor of clinical law and interim director of the International Human Rights Clinic at George Washington University School of Law. From 2009-2011, she taught as a Friedman Fellow in that clinic and the Public Justice Advocacy Clinic.

Professor Smith practiced at Legal Services of New Jersey. She has represented numerous low-wage workers in unpaid wage, human trafficking, and other employment matters. Most recently, she and her students represented a group of Filipino guestworkers in Magnifico, et al. v. Villanueva, et al., 783 F.Supp.2d 1217 (S.D.Fla. 2011), a suit alleging forced labor and human trafficking.

Committed to community education, Professor Smith has led trainings for workers and organizers, conducted outreach to workers, and developed know-your-rights publications.

Professor Smith's research and teaching interests include: language access and access to justice for individuals and communities with limited English proficiency; expansion and enforcement of guestworkers' workplace rights; the effects of trauma on clients, lawyers, and the legal process; and professional ethics in the context of social justice lawyering.

She is admitted to practice in Arkansas, New Jersey, the District of Columbia, and Wisconsin (inactive).
