The American Bar Foundation (ABF) was founded in 1952 and is recognized as the premier research institute for the empirical study of law in the United States. Among its research faculty are such notables as James Heckman, 2000 Nobel Prize winner in Economic Sciences; Austan Goolsbee, Chair of the President’s Council of Economic Advisors; Shari Diamond, who is generating important research on how juries actually work through a truly unique dataset on actual civil jury trials; Steven Levitt, whose bestseller, Freakonomics, reports on a broad range of innovative research that was supported by the ABF; and John Hagan, who received the Stockholm Prize in Criminology for his groundbreaking work on the genocides in the Balkans and Darfur.
ABF membership is limited to one third of one percent of the lawyers in America and is extended, by invitation only, to those recognized as having demonstrated leadership in and contribution to the legal profession as a whole.
