She has been recognized for her technology leadership by the American Bar Association’s Legal Technology Resource Center as one of the 2019 Women of Legal-Tech. She also has been very involved nationally in supporting more women and people of color to consider law school and university leadership. Osofsky received a doctorate in geography from the University of Oregon and a juris doctor degree from Yale Law School.
