Christie Hebert is an attorney at the Institute for Justice. Her practice focuses on property rights and free speech.

Christie previously litigated complex property disputes at a Texas-based firm, handling cases in both state and federal court. Immediately before joining IJ, Christie clerked for Justice Evan Young of the Texas Supreme Court during his initial term on the bench.

Christie received her law degree with honors from the University of Texas School of Law in 2015. At the same time, she earned a masters degree in public affairs from the University of Texas’s Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs. Her masters degree culminated in creating and teaching a course for the Army War College Fellowship on writing and critical thinking. After law school, Christie clerked for Judge Sam Sparks, United States District Judge of the Western District of Texas. And, in 2018, Christie was a Pegasus Scholar with the American Inns of Court.

Before law school, Christie also earned a degree in economics magna cum laude from Davidson College, where she was a Terry Scholar, a founder of the Davidson College Women’s Leadership Conference, and an ultimate frisbee player. After college, Christie completed a community service fellowship with Davidson before moving to Salzburg, Austria to work at the Salzburg Global Seminar, an international public policy nonprofit.

When Christie is not lawyering, she spends her time with her family. Christie and her husband met in law school and now have two young sons—who keep the Heberts on their toes.
