Abbey co-authored the Calfee Labor & Employment First Alert discussing the Supreme Court’s ruling that made it legal for an employer to require its employees, as a condition of their continued employment, to agree to arbitrate claims against the company through one-on-one arbitrations, and thus to give up their right to pursue claims as a class.
Abbey was a summer associate at Calfee in 2013 and served as judicial intern for Judge Sarah Evans Barker, United States District Court, Southern District of Indiana in fall 2013. She has also worked as a legal intern for the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.
Abbey earned her J.D., magna cum laude, from Indiana University Maurer School of Law, where she served as Articles Editor for the Indiana Law Journal and was a member of Order of the Coif.
