Katherine Cocklin '14
As a senior team member for the Counsel to the Mayor, Kate advises the Mayor’s Office on the most sensitive legal issues that face the City of New York and works to develop and advance policy proposals by coordinating across multiple agencies.
Kate was a significant architect to the City’s legal response to the global pandemic. From the onset of the pandemic, she worked tirelessly on many high profile issues, including developing the legal framework for the City’s outdoor dining program, open storefronts, citywide checkpoints, the City’s shutdown, the rush to acquire PPE, ensuring New Yorkers understood the City’s travel restrictions and finding solutions to many other “insurmountable” issues.
Kate has also overseen the development and production of City Hall Pass the first podcast of its kind to provide New Yorkers with an unprecedented look inside City Hall. Kate and her cohosts discuss key issues with City Hall and New York City’s most influential leaders and decision makers. She has represented the City on various panels for legal and non-legal audiences, including the New York State Bar and Queens Public Library.
