Catherine Albiston

Department: Law

Professor Albiston’s research addresses the relationship between law and social change through a variety of empirical projects. Her current study of more than 200 public interest law organizations investigates how variation in strategy, structure and mission among public interest law organizations relate to access to justice. Her other work examines institutional factors that influence law students’ commitment to public interest careers, bias against workers based on race, gender, and caretaker status, and gender and racial disparities in STEM faculty hiring as well as the institutional factors that mitigate these disparities.
