Prof. Vairo named a founding academic fellow of the Roscoe Pound Civil Justice Institute

Professor Georgene Vairo will become part of the Roscoe Pound Civil Justice Institute, a prominent think tank dedicated to the study of the civil justice system. The Pound Civil Justice Institute was established in 1956 by a group of American trial lawyers to honor and build upon the work of Roscoe Pound (1870-1964). Pound served as Dean of the Harvard Law School from 1916 to 1936, and is acknowledged as the founder of the discipline of sociological jurisprudence. Through its programs, the Institute works to give lawyers, judges, educators and the public a balanced view of the U.S. civil justice system.
