Gott joins Northeastern with more than 12 years of experience teaching legal skills.

Prior to teaching, Gott was a litigator for over a decade, with a focus on commercial, employment and probate litigation. She has also successfully represented clients pro bono in political asylum cases. Gott was born in Kyiv, Ukraine, and was a first-generation college and law student. She received her bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Connecticut and her JD from Suffolk University Law School, where she was the associate managing editor of the Suffolk University Law Review.

“I have long admired Northeastern Law’s commitment to social justice and the unique opportunity it gives 1Ls to put their legal skills training to work for public service partner organizations,” said Gott. “I am thrilled to work alongside the talented and dedicated LSSC faculty and couldn’t be more excited to meet the students this fall.”
