Professor Maureen Carroll teaches and writes about civil procedure, class actions, and civil rights litigation.

She is particularly interested in how procedure, substantive law, and the structure of the legal profession interact to define the scope of access to justice for identity-based discrimination and other broadly shared injuries. Her scholarship has appeared in the Duke Law Journal, the Boston University Law Review, and the Indiana Law Journal.

Following law school, Professor Carroll  worked as a staff attorney in impact litigation for Public Counsel in Los Angeles. She then returned to UCLA as the Bernard A. and Lenore S. Greenberg Law Review Fellow.​
