A Message from the Director:

All of us at the Center on Civil Justice were saddened by the passing of our esteemed advisory board member, retired Chief Judge of New York Judith Kaye. Judge Kaye was widely acclaimed for her intelligent and effective innovations in the New York court system, which served as models for other states. She cared deeply about providing legal services to those in need and used her position and immense skills to further that goal. She was a great leader of our Court of Appeals who brought both scholarship and humanity to that role. We admired her and will miss her greatly.
-Peter L. Zimroth

The Center on Civil Justice at New York University School of Law is dedicated to the study of the civil justice system in the United States and how it can continue to fulfill its purposes. The Center will draw on the unmatched strengths of the NYU Law faculty in the fields of procedure and complex litigation, as well as on a Board of Advisers consisting of leading practitioners and Judges, to identify the problems that most deserve further investigation and engagement, and to fill a void in scholarly and policy analysis.
