Professor Elizabeth MacDowell to Attend Clinical Law Review's Clinical Writers' Workshop

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

On Sept. 27, MacDowell will attend the Clinical Law Review’s Clinical Writers’ Workshop at New York University.

In addition to presenting her work-in-progress, “Rethinking Access to Justice in Poor People’s Courts,” she plans to visit the Center for Court Innovation in New York City to discuss their research on human sex trafficking, while also setting up other meetings on access to justice projects.

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