Bio/Research

Gerald N. Rosenberg is Associate Professor of Political Science and Lecturer in Law with interests in American politics and public law. His main focus is on the use of courts to further the rights and interests of the relatively disadvantaged. His book The Hollow Hope: Can Courts Bring About Social Change? overturns a generation of conventional wisdom about the impact of court decisions. The book was awarded the Wadsworth Publishing Award by the American Political Science Association for making a lasting contribution to the field of law and courts, the Gordon J. Laing Prize from the University of Chicago Press (for a book written by a faculty member that brings the greatest distinction to the University of Chicago Press) and the D. Francis Bustin Prize from the University of Chicago Law School. In addition to his scholarship, Rosenberg received a Quantrell Award for his teaching and four graduate students whose work he has supervised have won six national awards.
