The end of another fiscal year is upon us, and we at the ABF remain grateful for our supportive and generous Fellows community. This period has been challenging for everyone, and we are so proud that, with your help, we have continued to produce and share remarkable research that will improve our legal system, all while fostering a sense of community. We close this issue by recognizing our 2020-2021 Life Fellow Giving Society members, who continue to support the ABF's work after completing their initial Fellow's pledge. Congratulations to all on an excellent year!
ABF Researchers in the News
American Bar Foundation and ABA Commission on Women in the Legal Profession Release Groundbreaking Report Exploring High Attrition Rates for Senior Women Lawyers
ABF Collaborating Scholar Professor Joyce Sterling, Texas ABF Fellow Linda Chanow
The field of law has shifted dramatically in recent decades, especially in regard to gender diversity at the associate level. So why do so many experienced women lawyers leave at the height of their careers? Long-time ABF researcher Joyce Sterling and Texas ABF Fellow Linda Chanow held national focus groups with senior women in law across the country to ask three questions:

What do women lawyers like about the practice of law?

What negative factors or experiences do women identify as forces that make them consider leaving the practice of law?

What changes can be made to encourage women to stay in law practice?

Their findings have been compiled in a 2021 report, “In Their Own Words: Experienced Women Lawyers Explain Why They Are Leaving Their Law Firms and the Profession.”

The project is a collaboration between the American Bar Foundation and the ABA Commission on Women in the Legal Profession, and is the third such study conducted by the ABA Initiative on Achieving Long-Term Careers for Women in Law.

ABF Research Professor Tera Agyepong Credited in Washington Post Article About Ma'Khia Bryant's Death

On April 30, 2021, ABF Research Professor Tera Agyepong's work was referenced in a Washington Post article titled, “Child Welfare Systems Have Long Harmed Black Children Like Ma’Khia Bryant.” The author, Professor Crystal Lynn Webster, contextualized 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant’s killing by reflecting on the historical foundations of the foster care system and its criminalization of Black children. She utilized Professor Agyepong’s research regarding Mary Tripplet, a young Black girl from the 19th century who was labeled a “delinquent” for the crime of being an orphan.

ABF Faculty Spotlight

Professor Reuben Miller to Become Newest ABF/University of Chicago Joint Appointee

ABF Research Professor Reuben Jonathan Miller
2021 saw the arrival of Professor Reuben Jonathan Miller’s critically acclaimed book, “Halfway Home: Race, Punishment, and the Afterlife of Mass Incarceration,” and in September he will join the American Bar Foundation as Research Professor. The Chicago native has been a mainstay in the local community for many years: as a youth on the Southside, a chaplain in the Cook County Jail, a doctoral student at Loyola, and currently as a professor at the University of Chicago’s Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice. At the ABF, Professor Miller will continue exploring the ways race and poverty interact with crime, punishment, and social welfare.

Episode Four: The Health Equity Variant

Minnesota Community Care Senior Vice President Miguel Alexander Pozo, ABF Research Professor Carol A. Heimer, Minnesota Community Care President Reuben Moore
The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented global medical emergency that is overwhelming healthcare systems, shaping economies, and changing lives. While the pandemic effects are global, it has been particularly devastating to vulnerable and marginalized communities. How did the pandemic impact international health governance and health equity around the world? Was the vaccine rolled out equitably? And, looking beyond COVID, how can we reduce health disparities in the future? 
 
In this episode, we speak with ABF Research Professor Carol A. Heimer and Minnesota Community Care executives Reuben Moore and Miguel Alexander Pozo, an ABF Fellow. They discuss the COVID-19 pandemic’s revelations about the limitations of international health governance, the current state of health equity in the United States, and how we can strengthen legal tools to protect public health locally and abroad.

Fellow Spotlight:

Retired Nevada Supreme Court Chief Justice and ABF Visionary Fellow Miriam Shearing almost didn’t apply for law school. Thank goodness she did, setting the stage for a trailblazing legal career that broke down barriers for women at every level of the Nevada judiciary system. Justice Shearing has supported the American Bar Foundation since 1998, serving at various times as a Nevada state chair, chair of the Fellows Advisory Research Committee, and member of the ABF Council of Advisors. The Cornell University and Boston College Law School alumnus has also lent her expertise to the ABA Section of Litigation, as well as to the Municipal and District Courts of Nevada. 

Honorable Miriam Shearing
Visionary Fellow


Q: What does being a Fellow mean to you?
A: I have been richly rewarded by being able to serve for many years on the ABF Research Advisory Committee, where I was privileged to hear reports from most of our talented researchers and learn what is happening in so many aspects of law and society. 
 
Q: Where were you born and raised?
A: Spencer, New York (a small town near Ithaca) 
 
Q: Why did you decide to pursue a career in law?
A: I had trouble getting a job after my Cornell degree in philosophy and I couldn't type, so when my husband decided to go to medical school, I tried for a profession. I applied to law school just because I had all the prerequisites. As soon as I started, I realized that is where I should have been all along; I loved it. (I grew up in a small town where there were no lawyers, and I don't think I ever even talked to a lawyer before law school, so I never considered it as a career.)
 
Q: If you hadn’t pursued a career in law, what would you have done?
A: Once I discovered law, I couldn't imagine doing anything else.
 
Q: What do you do in your free time?
A: Read, although I am also involved in a number of local non-profit organizations.
 
Q: Anything else you'd like to share with us?
A: I was the first woman at every level of the courts in Nevada, even though I was told, "Women don't belong in the courtroom!" when I first applied for a position in a Justice Court. I retired as Chief Justice of the Nevada Supreme Court in 2005.
