Liz rejoined Faegre Drinker after clerking for District Judge Eric C. Tostrud and Magistrate Judge Elizabeth Cowan Wright of the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. During her clerkships, Liz gained valuable insight into judicial decision-making, effective lawyering and each step of district court litigation.
During law school, Liz served as editor-in-chief of the Mitchell Hamline Law Review. She was also an extern to Magistrate Judge Becky Thorson in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota and to Judge Carol Hooten in the Minnesota Court of Appeals.
Before law school, Liz was a law librarian for a large Minneapolis law firm, serving the research and information needs of attorneys and staff across three locations and litigation and transactional practice groups. She also worked at Hennepin County Library, Minnesota State Law Library and the Minnesota Legislative Reference Library.
Liz loves being outside, and her favorite outside activities are canoeing Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, playing in several sports at a mediocre level, and walking her husky along Minnehaha Creek and Lake Nokomis. She is also passionate about enjoying a good meal with good drinks, which is best prepared by someone other than her, and watching World Cup soccer.
