Allison Nasson is from Portland, Oregon. She graduated from the University of Puget Sound in 2018 with degrees in Sociology and Comparative Politics. After college, she worked as a case manager for survivors of human trafficking.
Allison’s work with trafficking survivors led her to attend law school.

After graduating, she plans to combine direct services with advocacy for policies that expand economic rights. She is especially interested in working with low-income workers and individuals experiencing homelessness.
At Penn Carey Law, Allison serves as a board member of the Civil Rights Law Project and an Associate Editor for the Journal of Law and Social Change. As a first-year law student, she worked with the Prisoners Legal Advocacy Network to study conditions of confinement experienced by prisoners during the COVID-19 pandemic. She spent her 1L summer interning for the Homeless Advocacy Project and working as a Research Assistant for Professor Dorothy Roberts.
