Rebecca L. Sandefur is a faculty fellow at the American Bar Foundation, where she founded and leads the Access to Justice Research Initiative. She investigates access to civil justice from every angle—from how legal services are delivered and consumed; to how civil legal aid is organized around the nation; to the role of pro bono; to the relative efficacy of lawyers, nonlawyers, and digital tools as advisers and representatives; to how ordinary people think about their justice problems and try to resolve them. In 2018, she was named a MacArthur Fellow for her work on inequality and access to justice.
