Dr. Statz’s new article, “On Shared Suffering: Judicial Intimacy in the Rural Northland,” explores the ways in which rurality impacts tribal and state court judges’ experiences on and beyond the bench.
Beautifully written, it is of interest to those in every court environment.
Law & Society Review says:
“Drawing from four years of ethnographic fieldwork, Professor Statz’s study places its readers inside the “Northland” courtrooms of rural Wisconsin and Minnesota. Her research displays the intimate relationship that judges from these communities share with their litigants and demonstrates the hardships endured by both judges and their litigants due to the consequences of rural “legal deserts,” absent health and social services, and depressed local economies.”
