University of Tennessee College of Law Professor Briana Rosenbaum has been named an academic fellow of the Pound Civil Justice Institute.
Rosenbaum’s research and writing interests, in the areas of procedure, institutional reform and access to justice in the federal justice system, firmly align with those of the Pound Civil Justice Institute. The Washington, DC-based institute is a national legal think tank founded by trial bar members and dedicated to ensuring access to justice for citizens.
Through its activities, the institute works to give lawyers, judges, legal educators and the public a balanced view of the legal issues in the United States. Members provide broad perspectives on how to strengthen the American civil justice system.
As one of the institute’s 69 academic fellows from across the United States valued for their expertise in their fields of study, Rosenbaum joins legal scholars Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the University of California Berkeley School of Law; Arthur Miller, civil procedure and copyright professor at New York University School of Law; and Judith Resnick, a professor at Yale Law School and the founding director of the Liman Center for Public Interest Law, among others.
As an academic fellow, Rosenbaum will assist the institute in maintaining a relevant, meaningful dialogue with the nation’s courts and law schools.
Rosenbaum has been a member of the College of Law faculty since 2013, having also taught at Stanford Law School. Her teaching focus is procedure, including evidence, pretrial litigation, class actions, complex litigation and civil procedure.
