Before joining the firm, Aris externed for the Western Center on Law & Poverty, where she worked on discovery and conducted extensive research on FEHA and Covid-19 Tenant Relief Act conflict of law issues, equity concerns regarding unemployment insurance and address requirements, and Covid-19 rent forgiveness agreements. She interned at the ACLU of Southern California, where she engaged in substantial research and writing in preparation for redistricting.

During law school, Aris was the Symposium Director for the UCLA Journal of International Law & Foreign Affairs, where she organized the journal’s 2022 symposium on “Borders, the Pandemic & Human Rights.” The symposium addressed how race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, and disability serve as social barriers to those attempting to access and utilize domestic power structures and institutions.
