Carroll, Maureen

Assistant Professor of Law

335 Hutchins Hall

Professor Maureen Carroll teaches and writes about civil procedure, civil rights litigation, and the dynamics of the legal market. She is particularly interested in how procedure, substantive law, and the structure of the legal profession interact to define the scope of access to justice for identity-based discrimination and other broadly shared injuries. Her scholarship has appeared in the Duke Law Journal, the Cardozo Law Review, and the Temple Law Review.

Professor Carroll received her BS in electrical engineering, magna cum laude, from Princeton University and her JD from UCLA School of Law, where she was ranked first in her class. Following law school, Professor Carroll clerked for the Hon. Stephen Reinhardt of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and worked as a staff attorney in impact litigation for Public Counsel in Los Angeles. She then returned to UCLA as the Bernard A. and Lenore S. Greenberg Law Review Fellow.​
