Portrait of Allison Freedman


Allison Freedman



Assistant Professor





Describe your research in about 200 words.

My research focuses on civil rights law and the ways statutory and regulatory regimes affect, stigmatize, and subordinate underserved and indigent communities. As a legal clinician, my research interests stem from real-world client interactions and litigation hurdles I encounter in my practice. For that reason, I frequently advocate for alternative statutory frameworks or legal challenges to the status quo to help create a more equitable environment for disenfranchised groups.
