Kimberly Foreiter


National Student Success Fellow

Kimberly Foreiter is the first-generation daughter of two hardworking Latinx immigrants. Kimberly graduated from Mount Holyoke College magna cum laude as a Posse and Coca-Cola Scholar and is now at Harvard Law School. At Mount Holyoke, Kimberly spent her time studying Psychology & Education all while pursuing her teacher licensure and minoring in Italian Studies.

While Kimberly loved being in the classroom, Kim began to view a law degree as a tool for making thoughtful changes in the education system. Kimberly currently serves as Co-President of La Alianza, Harvard Law’s Latinx Affinity Group. Kimberly has also served as Executive-Director of First Class, Harvard Law’s First-Generation Organization, and as the Technical Editor of the Harvard Latinx Law Review.

Kimberly has experience as a Judicial-Intern at the Massachusetts Superior Court for Judge Valerie Yarashus, as a research-assistant for Former HLS Dean Martha Minow and for Professor Jon Hanson, and has served as a Legal Intern at Massachusetts Advocates for Children. Prior to joining Ropes & Gray, Kim will be clerking for Judge William Young of the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts.

Like many of the scholars at the lab, Kim’s path was greatly impacted by pipeline organizations who helped guide her path to law school preparation such as the TRIALS program, the FSU Summer for Undergraduate Program, the Coca-Cola Scholars Program, and the Posse Foundation. Kimberly’s path to the lab began by serving as a teacher fellow for the Harvard Law inaugural “Future-L” course taught to high school students. When Kim is not working or reading for class, you can find her at a hot pilates studio or cooking up a hearty Argentine meal!
