Amanda Rice has been named among Crain's Detroit Business' 2024 "Notable Women in Law." The list honors the top women in law in Detroit with demonstrated excellence, leadership, and impact in the profession and their community.

Ms. Rice's practice focuses on appellate advocacy, critical motions, and difficult legal questions covering a broad range of substantive areas, including constitutional law, statutory interpretation, arbitration issues, Title IX questions, and class actions.

She has particular experience at the U.S. Supreme Court, which appointed her to brief and argue a Fourth Amendment question in Lange v. California, and she has played a primary role in drafting many other Supreme Court merits briefs, several successful petitions for certiorari, and a number of significant amicus briefs. She has also drafted dozens of winning briefs filed in the U.S. Courts of Appeals, state appellate courts, and trial courts across the country.

As the Detroit Office's pro bono partner, Ms. Rice coordinates the office's pro bono efforts and maintains her own active pro bono caseload, with a focus on civil rights, LGBTQ issues, and immigration. She has taught legal writing at the University of Michigan Law School and firearms law at Wayne State Law School. She also served as a judicial clerk at all three levels of the federal judiciary, clerking first for Judge Boasberg on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, then for Judge Tatel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, and finally for Justice Elena Kagan on the U.S. Supreme Court.
