About: Kim Pearson was the 2008-10 Law Teaching Fellow at the Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law. Pearson’s scholarship and research interests include intersections among areas of law, popular culture, and identity groups. Her published work and current scholarship explore bias and inequality that appear when systems of thought and legal action are in conflict or interact negatively. While there is already a great deal of scholarship about identity-based bias and discrimination, Pearson’s research builds and extends these insights by unpacking multi-layered messages in advocacy materials and popular culture and the translations of these materials into courtrooms and legal decisions. Her interest in inequality and intersectionality is an organic outgrowth of experience in practice along with studies in critical race studies, queer theory, popular culture, and legal studies. She holds a J.D. from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University and served as a senior editor on the BYU Law Review.
