On December 7, Professor Dalié Jiménez presented a poster on "Lives in Financial Distress: A Randomized Control Trial to Determine What Works and What Doesn't and an Investigation into the Debt Collection Industry" at the Access to Civil Justice: Re-envisioning and Reinvigorating Research conference.
Professor Jiménez joined the UConn Law faculty in 2011. Her interests include empirical and policy work in consumer financial protection and bankruptcy.

Before entering legal academia, Professor Jiménez practiced litigation at Ropes & Gray, clerked for the Honorable Juan R. Torruella in the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, and worked on consumer protection issues at the Massachusetts State Senate.
