Professor Moulton first came to Hastings in 1984 as Director of Clinical Instruction and spent the next six years teaching as an Adjunct Professor and helping to develop an expanded clinical program. When funding for the new program came through in 1990, she became part of the full-time faculty. She teaches roles and ethics in practice, and negotiation and settlement, with other courses added in from time to time.
A graduate of Pomona College, Professor Moulton worked in the civil rights movement, the Peace Corps, and anti-poverty programs before attending law school at Stanford. Upon graduation from law school, she worked at the Western Center on Law and Poverty and then became a supervising attorney in the clinical program at Harvard Law School, receiving an LL.M. from that institution in 1975. She has developed and directed training for legal services lawyers at the national level and taught for a number of years at Arizona State University. She is coauthor of The Lawyering Process: Materials for Clinical Instruction in Advocacy, the first comprehensive textbook to be published in the field of clinical education, and is currently working on a textbook for the roles and ethics course.
Professor Moulton lives in Berkeley. Her interests include painting, music, gardening, and looking after pets who survived the childhood of her daughter, Pilar, an undergraduate at Stanford.
