Hillary Schneller joined the Center for Reproductive Rights in 2014 and is now a senior staff attorney. She is co-lead counsel in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which the Supreme Court will hear this term. That case challenges Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban and presents a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade. It was filed on behalf of Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the last abortion clinic in Mississippi and a Center client for 20 years.
Hillary’s other litigation work at the Center includes cases to expand abortion access, including in Montana and Mississippi. She has also litigated other abortion ban cases and challenges to targeted regulations of abortion providers, including in Arkansas, Kansas, and Texas. Hillary additionally works closely with the Center’s human rights team to advance work on maternal health in the U.S.
Before joining the Center, Hillary was an Equal Justice Works fellow at the National Women’s Law Center, where her work focused on addressing gender discrimination in health care. She received her J.D. from Columbia Law School and her B.A. from Barnard College.
