  • Author Information

    Maureen Carroll

    Maureen Carroll is a Professor of Law at the University of Michigan Law School. She teaches and writes about civil procedure, class actions, and civil rights litigation.

    Carroll is particularly interested in how procedure, substantive law, and the structure of the legal profession interact to define the scope of access to justice for identity-based discrimination and other broadly shared injuries. Her scholarship has appeared in the Duke Law Journal, the Boston University Law Review, and the Indiana Law Journal.

    Following law school, Carroll worked as a staff attorney in impact litigation for Public Counsel in Los Angeles. She then returned to the University of California, Los Angeles School of Law as the Bernard A. and Lenore S. Greenberg Law Review Fellow.​

    Joanna C. Schwartz

    Joanna Schwartz is a Professor of Law at UCLA School of Law. She teaches Civil Procedure, the Civil Rights Litigation Clinic, and a variety of courses on police accountability and public interest lawyering. In 2015, she received UCLA’s Distinguished Teaching Award.

    Professor Schwartz is one of the country’s leading experts on police misconduct litigation. Her studies examine the frequency with which police departments gather and analyze information from lawsuits, and the ways in which litigation-attentive departments use lawsuit data to reduce the likelihood of future harms. She has also examined the financial effects of police misconduct litigation, including the frequency with which police officers contribute to settlements and judgments in police misconduct cases, and the extent to which police department budgets are affected by litigation costs. Professor Schwartz has also looked more broadly at how lawsuits influence decision-making in hospitals, airlines, and other organizational settings.

    Professor Schwartz additionally studies the dynamics of modern civil litigation. Recent scholarship examines the degree to which litigation costs and delays necessitate current civil procedure rules, and compares rhetoric with available evidence about the costs and burdens of class action litigation. She is co-author, with Stephen Yeazell, of a leading casebook, Civil Procedure (9th Edition).

    Professor Schwartz is a graduate of Brown University and Yale Law School. She was awarded the Francis Wayland Prize for her work in Yale Law School’s Prison Legal Services clinic. After law school, Professor Schwartz clerked for Judge Denise Cote of the Southern District of New York and Judge Harry Pregerson of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. She was then associated with Emery Celli Brinckerhoff & Abady LLP, in New York City, where she specialized in police misconduct, prisoners’ rights, and First Amendment litigation. She was awarded the New York City Legal Aid Society's Pro Bono Publico Award for her work as co-counsel representing a class of inmates challenging conditions at Rikers Island. Immediately prior to her appointment, Professor Schwartz was the Binder Clinical Teaching Fellow at UCLA School of Law.

    Stephen C. Yeazell

    Stephen Yeazell is David G. Price and Dallas P. Price Distinguished Professor of Law Emeritus at the UCLA School of Law. He writes about the history, theory, and dynamics of modern civil litigation. His courses correspond to these interests. He has received the campus’s highest awards for his teaching (the University's Distinguished Teaching Award), his research (the UCLA Faculty Research Lectureship), and his service (the Carole E. Goldberg award for distinguished service by an emeritus professor). He was also the first recipient of the School of Law's Rutter Award for Excellence in Teaching. He has served as Associate Dean of the School of Law, as Chair of the UCLA Academic Senate, and as Interim Dean of the School of Law. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences.

    Before studying law, Professor Yeazell did graduate work in English literature and taught English and history in junior high schools in New York City, an experience, he reports, that has made him appreciate the relative calm of even the feistiest law school class. After law school, he clerked for Justice Mathew Tobriner of the California Supreme Court.

    Professor Yeazell's books include From Medieval Group Litigation to the Modern Class Action (1987); Contemporary Civil Litigation (2009); Civil Procedure (10th ed., 2018, with Joanna Schwartz); and Lawsuits in a Market Economy: The Evolution of Civil Litigation (U. Chicago Press. 2018).
