Gbemende Johnson

Associate Professor of Government Gbemende Johnson recently participated as an invited panelist at the third annual Women in Law event hosted by law firm Baker Sterchi Cowden & Rice LLC. The theme of this year’s virtual event, “Perceptions and Misconceptions of Women in Law,” focused on how gender influences the experiences and perceptions of lawyers, judges, and law professors.

Johnson discussed her research with co-author Mike Fix about how variation in judge gender affects the way the public responds to judicial decisions in custody disputes. She also spoke about her recent research on judicial diversity in the U.S. and how institutional and social barriers along the legal pipeline disproportionately affect women of color, as well as women in general.
