Her litigation experience includes authoring a petition that secured the release of a wrongfully convicted defendant after 18 years of false imprisonment; representing a putative class subject to ICE detainers in an over-detention claim involving New York City jails; representing a group of plaintiffs who had been subject to racial discrimination when seeking to rent apartments in Astoria, Queens; and representing a police misconduct plaintiff in a federal jury trial.

From 2010-2013, Jain served as a member of the Civil Rights Committee of the New York City Bar Association. She previously clerked for Judge Walter K.

She graduated from Yale Law School in 2007, where she was awarded the Michael Egger Prize for the best student contribution to the Yale Law Journal on a current social problem.
