 Kenworthey Bilz focuses her scholarship on how social psychological processes can inform the study of law. Specifically, she is interested in how legal institutions, laws, rules and practices affect perceptions of legitimacy, morality, and justice, which in turn affect behavior. She draws most of her examples from the area of criminal law and evidence, and empirically tests her theories experimentally, using the theories and methods of social psychology. Before entering law teaching, she clerked for the Honorable Frank Easterbrook on the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. She teaches law at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and is a visiting professor at Notre Dame Law School for fall 2017. /assets/242601/300x/bilz_kenworthey.jpgVisiting ProfessorLeslie Berg
