Carrie S. Zoubul

Carrie Zoubul graduated from Brooklyn Law School in May 2006. Prior to attending law school, she received an M.A. in bioethics from Case Western Reserve University. She completed her undergraduate education at University of California, Los Angeles, majoring in Philosophy.

During law school, Ms. Zoubul focused on integrating her background in bioethics with health law, interning at Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County in its Health Law Unit, the Division of Bioethics and Medical Humanities at Montefiore Medical Center, New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, and the Office of the New York State Attorney General in the Health Care Bureau. She was an Edward V. Sparer Public Interest Fellow and served on the staff of the Journal of Law and Policy.

As a 2006-2007 Borchard Fellow, Ms. Zoubul will develop interdisciplinary educational project, “Educating for Professional Intersections in Law, Medicine & Advocacy.” The project will be undertaken jointly by Brooklyn Law School’s Center for Health, Science and Public Policy, the Divisions of Geriatrics and Medical Humanities at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and the Sarah Lawrence College Graduate Program in Health Advocacy. The project will bring together graduate students from the three different disciplines of law, medicine and health advocacy in a clinical program that will foster understanding and collaboration between the professions, By increasing opportunities for students to pursue a interdisciplinary approach to professional education, it will enable them to better serve the complex health-related needs of the elderly, ultimately improving the quality of patient care. Ms. Zoubul will also work part time at the Vera Institute of Justice’s Guardianship Project, which provides guardianship services for incapacitated individuals in the New York State court system.
