Katherine Brem

Clinical Assistant Professor
Lawyering Skills and Strategies

Katherine Brem first came to the Law Center in the fall of 2000 as a clinical assistant professor of Legal Research and Writing and taught lawyering skills, and occasionally legal drafting, for five years. After a nine-year hiatus, Professor Brem returned to the Law Center in 2014. Prior to her initial stint at the Law Center, Professor Brem spent six years with Baker Botts LLP as an associate in the trial department. Professor Brem graduated with honors from the University of Texas School of Law in 1994, where she served on the Texas Law Review. Her research and teaching interests include the use of legal technology in practice, procedural issues, and the introduction of the U.S. legal system to non-U.S. lawyers. Professor Brem’s primary interest, however, is in developing practice ready graduates at the Law Center by focusing on the intersection of legal research and writing, evidence, procedure, and doctrinal law. Professor Brem has extensive experience with trial motion practice, both pretrial and post-verdict; appellate briefing; drafting and arguing jury charges, objections and other pretrial matters; arguing legal issues at trial; and formulating critical aspects of litigation and appellate strategy.
