Currently ranked eighth in her class, West York native Katelyn is preparing for her May graduation from the Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law as a clerk in our York office. This is already her second extended stay at the firm, as she worked as a summer associate in 2019.
Barley Snyder hardly was her first experience in practical law. She already has worked as a legal assistant at a Philadelphia-area firm, a legal intern with the New Jersey Attorney General, State Police, Corrections & Employment Division working in employment litigation, a judicial intern with Judge Anne E. Lazarus of the Pennsylvania Superior Court and as a legal intern with the Pennsylvania Board of Pardons.
At Drexel Law, Katelyn is the vice president of the school’s student bar association and is the articles editor at the Drexel Law Review. She is attending Drexel Law on the Rising Advocate Scholarship, which covers her full tuition. She has also donated pro bono assistance to the Homeless Advocacy Project and the Pennsylvania Innocence Project, and is also a student mentor.
She graduated summa cum laude from West Chester University, where she was the captain of the school’s cheerleading team and received a degree in psychology with a minor in criminal justice. Katelyn enjoys hitting the gym, spending time with her family and baking to relax through the rigors of her final semester of law school.
