The officers and trustees of the Pound Civil Justice Institute have asked Professor Carol Anderson of Wake Forest University School of Law to become one of the first Pound Academic Fellows.

This new membership category has been instituted by the Pound Institute Board of Trustees as a way to formalize outreach to the academic community and to make it possible to identify, and consult easily with, academics who have special expertise in areas of interest to the Institute.

The Pound Civil Justice Institute is a national legal “think tank” created by pioneering members of the trial bar and dedicated to ensuring access to justice for ordinary citizens. Through its activities, the Institute works to give lawyers, judges, legal educators and the public a balanced view of the issues affecting the U.S. civil justice system.
