Hallie Jay Pope is a cartoonist and lawyer living in Brooklyn, New York. She is the founder and president of the Graphic Advocacy Project, a nonprofit that uses visual communication tools – like comics, animations, and infographics – to explain legal issues. Pope’s work is motivated by the belief that legal knowledge belongs to everyone, not just lawyers. She strives to create visual expressions of law that inform, engage, and mobilize viewers.
Hallie has been incorporating cartoons into her legal advocacy since law school. As a fellow at the ACLU of Massachusetts, she created comics and animations about student privacy, reproductive rights, and police accountability. Her Supreme Court cartoons are featured in Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Hallie is a graduate of Brown University and Harvard Law School. She has completed courses at the School of Visual Arts, the Rhode Island School of Design, and the Harvard Department of Visual and Environmental Studies.
