Professor Johnson joined the University of Oklahoma College of Law faculty in 2012 after four years of teaching at the University of North Dakota College of Law. She teaches immigration, criminal law, federal courts, and civil procedure. Her scholarly interests lie in the area of immigration and, specifically, the intersection of U.S. immigration law and U.S. business interests. 

Prior to teaching, Professor Johnson was an attorney with the Los Angeles law firm of Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP, where she practiced general commercial litigation. Her clients included Berkshire Hathaway, Rambus, and Brighton Collectibles. She also provided pro bono representation in several adoption and guardianship proceedings before the Los Angeles County Courts. In addition, she served on the Board of Directors of Inner Circle Foster Care and Adoption Services, a nonprofit agency in California’s San Fernando Valley.

Before entering private practice, Professor Johnson served as a law clerk to the Honorable Pamela A. Rymer of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and the Honorable Robert C. Broomfield of the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona.

Professor Johnson received her J.D. from the University of California at Berkeley, Boalt Hall School of Law, and her B.A. from Wesleyan University, where she was a College of Letters major.
