Hannah Burton

Hannah Burton is an Equal Justice Works Fellow at the Institute to Transform Child Protection, Mitchell Hamline School of Law. Her fellowship is focused on providing preventative legal representation and policy reform efforts to help keep families safe, healthy, and together. During law school, Hannah worked with an interdisciplinary team to represent parents and relatives in juvenile court, and on various policy changes to improve Minnesota‚Äôs child protection laws. Prior to pursuing her law degree, Hannah worked directly with families as a social worker for eight years in various roles within and adjacent to the child welfare system. Hannah’s clients and her family are her inspiration to continuously work toward a society where children and families are helped rather than hurt by systems and policies.
