Joy Radice

Director of Clinical Programs and Associate Professor of Law

Joy Radice joined the UT College of Law faculty in August 2012, and became director of the UT Legal Clinic in 2019. Professor Radice’s scholarship focuses on the intersection of criminal law and the administrative state, and the gap in access to civil counsel. Her forthcoming article The Reintegrative State will be published in the Emory Law Journal in 2017. She is also a co-editor of Beyond Elite Law: Access to Justice for Americans of Average Means (Cambridge University Press) and a co-author of Developing Professional Skills: Criminal Law (West Publishing).

Professor Radice teaches Advocacy Clinic, Criminal Law, a seminar on Poverty, Race, Gender and the Law, and a new Expungement Clinic. In 2012, she was awarded a UT Creative Teaching Grant, and she is currently a UT Junior Faculty Fellow.

Prior to UT, Professor Radice was the 2008-09 NYU Derrick Bell Fellow and an Acting Assistant Professor at NYU School of Law. Professor Radice has dedicated her legal career to serving those who cannot afford legal representation. While attending Harvard Law School, she was a member of the Legal Aid Bureau, a student-run legal services organization, and she was a community organizer who helped women in Cambridge public housing start their own tenants’ organization. After graduating law school, Professor Radice received a Skadden Public Interest Fellowship to launch the Harlem Reentry Advocacy Project to represent people facing collateral consequences of criminal convictions. The project was housed at the Neighborhood Defender Service of Harlem, where she also represented clients in criminal and civil cases. This work led to her research about the enduring impact that criminal convictions and juvenile adjudications have on people’s lives through their post-conviction civil penalties.
