Suellyn Scarnecchia taught at the University of Michigan Law School, 1987-2002.
BiographyMichigan alumna Suellyn Scarnecchia (J.D. '81) joined the Child Advocay Law Clinic in May, 1987, following six years with the western Michigan law firm of McCroskey, Feldman, Cochrane and Brock, PC, in Battle Creek. There, in addition to her legal work, she led a grassroots movement to open a domestic violence shelter. Scarnecchia finds that teaching in the clinical program combines her trial practice experience with her personal interest in working with victims of familyviolence.
