Professor Howell teaches the art and science of interactive, learner-centered methodologies to legal professionals and non-lawyers worldwide.  She researched the areas of education policy, accountability, assessment, and best practices. During her time away from Street Law, Professor Howell was the deputy director and legal counsel of the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council in the District of Columbia, Executive Office of the Mayor, where she collaborated with local juvenile and adult justice agencies to create policies at the intersections of justice and education to improve outcomes for justice-involved citizens.  Professor Howell also served as legislative counsel and general counsel for an education advocacy organization that promoted access to high-quality education for all students.
