Employment Justice Center's Workers' Rights Clinic. During her second and third years of law school, she served as an associate editor and then a senior editor of the UDC Law Review. Courtney received her bachelor's degree in sociology from The George Washington University. While studying there, she served as a research assistant in the sociology department, where she worked on a study of gender discrimination during the hiring process of employment.

Originally from Philadelphia, Courtney is admitted to practice law in Pennsylvania (currently inactive) state and federal courts (Eastern District of Pennsylvania), and the District of Columbia.
