Professor Carpenter participates in poverty law and academic activism conference

Anna Carpenter, Assistant Clinical Professor and Director of The University of Tulsa College of Law’s Lobeck Taylor Family Advocacy Clinic, participates in an empirical advocacy panel at the Poverty Law: Academic Activism conference at Seattle University School of Law on Saturday, February 20. The panel, consisting of scholars conducting empirical research in areas of poverty law where they are also advocates and activists, explores the intersection of empirical research and activism and addresses the question of whether empirical research should be designed as a means to advance advocacy and activism ends.

Professor Carpenter discusses her collaborative research project with Colleen Shanahan of Temple University Beasley School of Law, “An Empirical Examination of the Roles of Judges in Access to Justice,” which is based in a Washington, DC court. Carpenter also discusses a new research project based in Tulsa, a collaboration with The University of Tulsa Institute of Trauma, Adversity, and Injustice (TITAN) and Dr. Joanne Davis, which examines the Tulsa Integrated Domestic Violence Court.
