Elizabeth MacDowell is the Director of the Family Justice Clinic and Associate Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On April 29, Professor MacDowell will present her work in progress, "Rethinking Access to Justice: Self-help, Advocacy and the Poor People's Courts," at the Association of American Law Schools Clinical Conference. She will also present her empirical research project, with the same title as her work in progress, as part of the Bellow Scholar's panel at the conference.

Her research focuses on intersectional issues of race, class, and gender, domestic violence, access to justice, and the impact of criminalization on low-income families.
