Rachael Kohl

Ann Arbor, Michigan

Rachael Kohl is a clinical assistant professor and directs the law school's Workers' Rights Clinic (formerly the Unemployment Insurance Clinic). In this clinic, she supervises hundreds of unemployment cases a year in the administrative and Michigan circuit courts, Michigan Court of Appeals, and Michigan Supreme Court. Her primary practice areas are labor and employment law. Prior to joining the law school faculty, Professor Kohl was an attorney with Pitt McGehee Palmer & Rivers, PC. She worked on a variety of civil rights and employment law cases, including the firm's ongoing class-action lawsuit against the Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency. As part of her role managing the class action, she interviewed and reviewed hundreds of individual claimants' cases. She also represented many individual claimants to protest and appeal the agency's false fraud determinations. Prior to joining the firm, Professor Kohl maintained her own litigation practice, which included representing claimants in unemployment hearings alongside the Sugar Law Center for Economic and Social Justice in Detroit. Professor Kohl is a member of the Michigan Association for Justice, the Women Lawyers of Michigan, the Association of American Law Schools, the Clinical Legal Education Association, and the Michigan State Planning Body.
