Professors Cammett and MacDowell Place New Article in Violence Against Women

The Boyd School of Law is very pleased to announce that Professor Ann Cammett and Professor Elizabeth MacDowell placed one of their new articles, "Models of Invisibility: Rendering Domestic and Other Gendered Violence Visible through Clinical Teaching," in volume 19 (forthcoming 2013) of the peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal Violence Against Women.

"Models of Invisibility" describes Professor Cammett and Professor MacDowell's experience creating the Family Justice Clinic at Boyd School of Law and illustrates how they made gendered violence more visible to students through clinical teaching even in cases in which gendered violence was not part of the presenting legal problem. The article will appear in a special issue of Violence Against Women that is devoted to teaching domestic violence. The issue is co-edited by University of Miami School of Law Professor Donna Coker and Arizona State University School of Social Transformation Professor Madelaine Adelman.

Congratulations, Anni and Elizabeth!
