Professor Sokol joined the Loyola College of Law faculty in 2009. Her teaching and research areas include torts, products liability, law and philosophy/jurisprudence, public health and safety and environmental law, and constitutional law.

Professor Sokol graduated from Yale Law School, where she served as Articles Editor for the Yale Human Rights and Development Law Journal and was a member of the Allard K. Lowenstein International Human Rights Clinic. After law school, Professor Sokol clerked for Judge Carolyn Dineen King of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and worked as an associate in the appellate section of Vinson & Elkins, LLP. She then worked as a policy analyst for the Center for Progressive Reform, writing a number of papers and articles on environmental and public health and safety issues, with a focus on government and corporate accountability. The year before coming to Loyola, Professor Sokol was a fellow at Georgetown University Law Center, where she worked with faculty members on scholarship about developments in international law in response to globalization and about national and transnational tobacco control policies. She continues to focus on these and related topics in her current research.
