Rachel Monaco-Wilcox, J.D.
Chair and Assistant Professor, Justice Department
Coordinator, LOTUS Legal Clinic at Mount Mary University


  • Marquette University Law School,  J.D., cum laude, May 2004
  • Marquette University, Honors B.A. in English and Theology, magna cum laude, May 1999

"Mount Mary's undergraduate justice majors are amazing women.  I get to train them to enter the professional world and to make changes for social good. This happens within their own lives at the same time as it ripples out to effect the community.  I teach about women's law, human trafficking, gender violence, comparative and international law and innovative legal responses to persistent legal problems and new ones created by new technology, climate change, and populations in flux.  

The LOTUS Legal Clinic (Legal Options for Trafficked and Underserved Survivors) and the Untold Stories program series are lynchpins and signature for Mount Mary's work on social justice.  We are committed to a survivor-centered view of changing the status quo of law and culture.  

In the classroom, I also have the joy of sharing my practice experiences in the field of Elder Mediation- a branch of dispute resolution that works with Elder law, probate, trust, and adult guardianship issues.  I draw on my professional network to help my students find their unique place in the law."
