Adam Zimmerman

Professor of Law; Gerald Rosen Fellow

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm Robinson Courtroom

Professor Zimmerman’s scholarship explores the way class action attorneys, regulatory agencies and criminal prosecutors provide justice to large groups of people through overlapping systems of tort law, administrative law and criminal law. In 2016, the federal government adopted Zimmerman’s recommendations to permit class actions in administrative hearings based on findings that appear in his forthcoming article in the Yale Law Journal, Inside the Agency Class Action.

November 6

Priscilla Ocen

Professor of Law

5:00 pm - 6:00 pm 

Priscilla Ocen is an Associate Professor of Law at Loyola Law School, where she teaches criminal law, family law and a seminar on race, gender and the law. Her work examines the relationship between race and gender identities and punishment. In particular, Ocen’s scholarship has explored conditions of confinement within women’s prisons and the race and gender implications of the use of practices such as shackling during labor and childbirth.  She has also explored the ways in which race, gender and class interact to render women of color vulnerable to various forms of violence and criminalization.
