Christy Botts is the Minnesota Justice Foundation (MJF) staff attorney in the MJF office at the University of St. Thomas School of Law. She has proudly been serving in this role since 2014.

Christy earned a J.D. with honors from the University of St. Thomas in 2011. Before entering law school, she was focused on improving the lives of youth, families, and communities – this passion is what ultimately brought her to earn a Master of Education degree from the University of Minnesota and what led her to law school. Since graduating from St. Thomas Law, Christy has been an Academic Counselor at Southern University Law Center in Baton Rouge, LA and a tutor for Hamline University School of Law. In 2014, Christy co-founded Rebound, Inc., a non-profit with a mission to lead the way in the innovation and provision of evidence-based and community-centered, education, advocacy, and rehabilitation solutions for the issues facing the black community in the Twin Cities, particularly youth.

Christy is a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association and the Hennepin County Bar Association. She is also a realtor and believes strongly in home ownership as a community building enterprise. Christy served as a volunteer for the City of Lakes Community Land Trust for many years.

During law school, Christy was honored by the Minnesota Justice Foundation for her volunteer legal services. She held elected positions on St. Thomas Law's Board of Advocates and Public Service Board, participated in the William E. McGee National Civil Rights Moot Court Competition, and was a key organizer of the University of St. Thomas School of Law's intramural moot court competition.
