Erin E. Dolly

Associate Attorney, Hirschfeld Kraemer LLP

Adjunct Professor Erin E. Dolly is an attorney at Hirschfeld Kraemer LLP in San Francisco, where she counsels institutions of higher education and other public and private employers on a broad range of legal matters. She is the former assistant dean for student affairs at USF School of Law, where she served for over seven years, with primary responsibility for students and recent graduates. In this role, she oversaw student life including orientation, advising, policy development and enforcement, professional development, diversity and inclusion, community engagement, student conduct issues, crisis intervention, commencement, and school-sponsored, post-graduate fellowships and programs. 

Prior to working at the law school, Dolly was an associate in the global employment group in the San Francisco Office of Baker & McKenzie LLP. She was co-chair of Baker & McKenzie's SF/PA Pro Bono Committee and, as a part of that role, co-authored an amicus brief in support of an application for Writ of Certiorari to the Supreme Court of the United States in Winkelman v. Parma City School District, co-wrote a chapter of an international negotiation manual for the Public International Law and Policy Group, and contributed to a background report on Legal Mechanisms for Government Accountability for the Rule of Law and Access to Justice Working Group for the U.N. Commission for the Legal Empowerment of the Poor. In 2006, she received the Outstanding Barrister of the Year Award from the Bar Association of San Francisco.
