Katelyn Masket recently received her J.D. from Stanford Law School and joins Accountability Counsel through SLS’s International Postgraduate Fellowship. During law school, Katelyn was a member of the International Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Clinic, where she worked with Accountability Counsel on the Ridge to Reef Conservation project in Myanmar. Her clinic projects also involved investigating economic and social rights violations in Yemen, probing the role multinational corporations played in Colombia’s civil war, and partnering with a truth commission to apply international law to local rights violations. Additionally, Katelyn worked closely with the International Refugee Assistance Project, managed the Immigration Policy Tracking Project, and conducted research for Stanford’s Center for Ocean Solutions on the human rights and environmental implications of forced labor in the fishing industry.
Before law school, Katelyn worked for the International Rescue Committee in Los Angeles and New York. She served both as a case worker for recently resettled refugees and asylees, and as a program manager focused on research ethics in humanitarian contexts for IRC’s Research and Innovation teams. Katelyn earned her B.A. in International Relations from University of Southern California. Outside of work, she spends most of her time experimenting with vegetarian recipes and trying to keep her tireless border collie entertained.
