"Does the Judge's Gender Make a Difference?"

February 17, 2010 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Speaker/Participants: 
Pat K. Chew (Professor of Law)

Women's Studies

There has been a surge of empirical research on judges, including judges’ gender.  To the extent that there is a difference between the way female judges and male judges resolve legal cases, the frequent hypothesis is that those differences would most likely appear in employment discrimination, particularly sex discrimination, cases.  This presentation explores this hypothesis, including the presenter’s own empirical research.
