In addition to her practice, Ritee Sponsler works in donor relations with the ACLU of Washington. Drawing from her background in both law and communications, she implemented the organization’s comprehensive Continuing Legal Education (CLE) program, which offers free and low-cost CLE seminars in order to serve public interest attorneys, engage young lawyers, and encourage pro bono service.
Ritee earned her JD from University of San Francisco School of Law, where she was Student Bar Association President and the graduate student representative to the USF Board of Trustees. A two-time fellow of the USF Center for Law & Global Justice, Ritee examined the treatment of Haitian refugees in the Dominican Republican and taught human rights to Tibetan refugees in India.
