Krista Ralston (Madison, WI)Of Counsel, is an emerita clinical law professor who has specialized in criminal and civil litigation for more than 25 years. Before becoming a full-time clinical professor and program director at the University of Wisconsin Law School in 1990, she practiced law in both the private and public sectors. Her practice experience includes a federal clerkship with Chief Judge Barbara Crabb (W.D. Wisc.), two years as an Assistant U.S. Attorney and several years in private practice. She has litigated hundreds of cases in both state and federal courts, including a variety of complex, multi-party cases. She was also “of counsel” in several class action suits brought by the former Youth, Policy and Law Center in Madison, WI. As clinical law professor and program director of a trial-level criminal defense clinical program, Ralston specialized in teaching litigation technique and theory through live-client clinical supervision and classroom courses such as trial and pre-trial advocacy and evidence. She also coached mock trial teams in regional and national competitions, presented papers at national and international conferences, taught as a visiting professor in Giessen, Germany, and published articles in legal journals. She has been active in national, state and local organizations advocating for the disenfranchised, including sitting on various professional and community-action boards of directors, and is the recipient of numerous law school and professional awards.
