Kathryn Hendley is Voss-Bascom Professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her research focuses on legal reform in post-Soviet Russia. She has published widely on issues relating to how ordinary Russians experience law. Her research is based upon extensive travel in Russia and engagement with Russians. Her work has been supported by grants and fellowships from many sources including the National Science Foundation, the National Council on Eurasian and East European Research, the World Bank, and Fulbright Scholar Program. Professor Hendley holds a joint appointment: her law school courses include contracts, comparative law, and Russian law; in the Political Science department she regularly teaches Russian politics, law, society and politics and comparative legal institutions. She received her J.D. from UCLA School of Law and her Ph.D. from University of California, Berkley. Professor Hendley will be coming to Princeton from Russia where she spent the 2011-12 academic year on a Fulbright research fellowship and an Ed Hewett fellowship exploring Russians’ access to justice. At Princeton she will be working on a monograph about how law works in Russia, tentatively titled “Everyday Law in Russia.”
