Britta drafts motions and researches complex legal issues in product liability litigation and class actions. She honed her writing and research skills during her clerkship with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit, where she drafted opinions and bench memoranda.
While in law school, Britta refined her oral advocacy skills through the law school's trial competition—which she won and earned the “Best Oral Advocate" award—as well as the Federal Appellate Litigation Project. In that program, she handled all aspects of a prisoner’s civil rights appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, from drafting the opening brief and reply brief to delivering oral arguments before the court. Britta also participated in the law school’s legal clinic, where she handled all aspects of multiple criminal defense cases from charging to sentencing.
