About Jaime Alison Lee

Lee joined the faculty in 2011 and teaches Business Organizations and the Community Development Clinic. CDC student attorneys provide creative transactional and regulatory legal services to local organizations that promote social and economic equity. Lee’s scholarship examines barriers faced by low-income people within contemporary legal systems, analyzes how systems meant to benefit the poor are frequently subverted or distorted, and proposes ways to combat such subversion. Lee’s scholarly writings have been put into practice through the CDC’s coalition work on water justice in the City of Baltimore, which resulted in the creation of an innovative governmental accountability structure. In 2020, the CDC’s water justice work received Honorable Mention for Excellence in a Public Interest Project by the Clinical Legal Education Association (CLEA).
Prior to joining the University of Baltimore faculty, Lee taught in the Community and Economic Development Law Clinic at American University, Washington College of Law and was a partner at a boutique law firm in Washington, D.C. specializing in federal affordable housing law, policy, finance, and public-private partnerships. Lee also clerked for Judge Marvin Katz in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, trained and served as a mediator, and was an editor of the Harvard Negotiation Law Review.
