“In collaboration with DePaul’s Black Leadership Coalition (DPUBLC), the DePaul Women’s Network is proud to present DePaul University School of Law Distinguished Centennial Professor, Susan Bandes, as a speaker for our upcoming Faculty Forum. Prof. Bandes is widely known as a scholar in the areas of federal jurisdiction, criminal procedure and civil rights, and more recently, as a pioneer in the emerging study of the role of emotion in law.”
“Professor Susan Bandes’s legal career began in 1976 at the Illinois Office of the State Appellate Defender. In 1980, she became staff counsel for the Illinois A.C.L.U., where she litigated a broad spectrum of civil rights cases and helped draft and secure passage of the Illinois Freedom of Information Act. She joined the DePaul faculty in 1984, and was named Distinguished Research Professor in 2003 and Centennial Distinguished Professor in 2012. Her articles appear in, among others, the Yale, Stanford, University of Chicago, Michigan and Southern California law reviews, as well as peer-reviewed journals including Law and Social Inquiry, Constitutional Commentary, and the Law and Society Review. Her book on the role of emotion in law, entitled The Passions of Law, was published by NYU Press in January 2000, and released in paperback in 2001. Prof. Bandes presents her work frequently at academic symposia and workshops, as well as to non-academic legal groups such as the American Constitution Society. Her recent pro bono activities include acting as co-reporter for the Constitution Project’s bipartisan Death Penalty Initiative, which produced the report Mandatory Justice: Eighteen Reforms to the Death Penalty, and serving on the advisory board to the Chicago Appleseed Fund for Justice’s study of the criminal justice system in Cook County, IL.”
