Judith Resnik Awarded Carnegie Fellowship

Judith Resnik of Yale Law School has been selected as a member of the 2018 class of Andrew Carnegie Fellows. She is among the 31 scholars and writers to receive the two-year grants that enable recipients to have time for sustained research and writing.

From Yale Law’s announcement:

The Andrew Carnegie Fellowship enables Professor Resnik to trace the transnational history of prison reform and to analyze the efforts of individuals who insisted that they were entitled to law’s protection and succeeded in gaining recognition as rights holders. Her project analyzes how obligations of democratic states toward people in and out of prison are forged, and why the debilitation that many prison systems impose is beyond what governments should be able to inflict as punishment for crimes.

An ALI member since 1988, Professor Resnik currently serves as an Adviser on Restatement of the Law, The Law of American Indians, and Principles of the Law, Student Sexual Misconduct: Procedural Frameworks for Colleges and Universities.
