352 - Minh Ngoc Vu - How a Top Litigator Becomes a Champion for Civil Rights and Accessibility

1h 2m | May 23, 2024

After graduating from law school, Minh spent nearly a decade as a litigator at one of the world’s top law firms, where she handled a variety of cases at all levels of the federal judicial system and before state and federal agencies.

In 2001, Minh joined the Department of Justice where she served as Counselor to the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights. In that position, Minh oversaw the enforcement of the ADA, the FHA, the Rehabilitation Act, as well as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

She also represented the DOJ at the US Access Board, the federal agency charged with creating accessibility guidelines for public accommodations, commercial facilities, and federal agencies. She returned to private practice in 2003, where she has focused her practice on Title III of the ADA and related laws.
