About the Center

The Civil Justice Research Institute explores, through interdisciplinary, academically-based and independent research, how the civil justice system can be made more available to everyone seeking relief.

Dean Chemerinsky is the author of 10 books and more than 200 law reviews. He is one of the most cited legal scholars in the country.

“Too often, the courthouse doors are closed to those who have suffered serious injuries and violations of their rights.  By emphasizing rigorous scholarship and thorough research, the Civil Justice Research Institute can make a real difference in access to the American justice system.”
