On February 23, Professor Alexandra Lahav will be a panelist for "Juries As Participants in Democracies" at the 2013 William and Mary Law Review symposium, "The Civil Jury As Political Institution."
Professor Lahav is an expert on complex litigation. She has published articles on class actions, mass torts and the political economy of civil litigation. She is especially interested in procedural justice and the limits of due process. She currently is working on a book exploring lawyer resistance and cooptation in injustice, in addition to projects on civil procedure and mass litigation. The fourth edition of her casebook (with Stephen Subrin, Martha Minow , Mark Brodin, and Thomas Main), Civil Procedure: Doctrine, Practice, and Context, was recently released by Aspen Publishing.
Each spring, Vanderbilt Law School’s Cecil D. Branstetter Litigation & Dispute Resolution Program holds an annual New Voices in Civil Justice Workshop.” Alexandra Lahav was chosen as a “New Voice” in 2012.
