Annie Harrar is a Case Manager at Kaplan Hecker & Fink. Annie graduated summa cum laude from Connecticut College with a B.A. in Philosophy and Gender and Women’s Studies. In recognition of her academic excellence, she received numerous departmental awards, including the Robert W. Jordan Prize for excellence in Philosophy, the Jane W. Torrey Award for excellence in Gender and Women’s Studies, and the German Consulate Book Prize for outstanding achievement in German Studies. Annie was among the first in her class to be inducted into Phi Beta Kappa, and received the title of Winthrop Scholar for that achievement.

“As an impassioned advocate of social justice and public service, I was captivated by Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP deep commitment to public interest litigation. Every single member of the Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP team has exhibited a remarkable, unparalleled passion for justice, fairness, and equity. I look forward to the opportunity to work with and receive invaluable insights from such a passionate, principled, and premier team.”

Through her studies in Philosophy and Gender and Women’s Studies, Annie has cultivated a deep passion for social justice, legal advocacy, and grassroots activism. Having studied the interrelationships between institutional racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and ageism, she has become acutely attentive to how these modes of oppression have prevented entire populations from accessing basic services, such as healthcare, education, and legal counsel. While much of her coursework examined institutional oppression from a theoretical perspective, Annie has also had ample opportunities to apply her newfound knowledge through prior legal internships, especially through her summer internship at the Domestic Violence Bureau of the Kings County District Attorney’s Office.

Annie is thrilled by the opportunity to fulfill her public service interests as a Case Manager for Kaplan Hecker & Fink. In the future, she plans to attend law school to pursue a career in civil rights litigation.
