The American Bar Foundation (ABF) and SPB Foundation Access to Justice Scholars Program announced the 2023-24 cohort of Faculty Scholars. Among the scholars selected was Maureen Waller, Cornell University Professor of Policy Analysis and Management and Sociology.
From diverse backgrounds, each faculty member selected brings expertise to further the program’s core mission: generating impactful research on access to civil justice and translating this research into practice.
The Access to Justice Scholars Program promotes the next generation of scholars and supports the infrastructure of the burgeoning field of access to justice. It brings together scholars from across the country from many disciplines, including law, political science, public health, and sociology, to foster discoveries and build theoretical and empirical understanding of what is currently happening with access to civil justice.
In addition to Maureen Waller, Chiara Galli (2020-22 Cornell Sociology post-doc), was also a selected scholar for the 2023-24 cohort.
