Kristen Holmquist joined the Berkeley Law faculty in 2008, after six years as Director of Academic Support at UCLA Law. She teaches constitutional law, estates and trusts, as well as a handful of courses that more directly explore human-centered lawyering. She writes and thinks about legal education, and is especially interested in making law school a more equitable and inclusive space.
In 2017 Holmquist received the law school’s Rutter Award for Teaching Excellence. She has also received teaching awards from La Alizana and Women of Berkeley Law.
