Doris Marie Provine
Areas of Expertise & Civic Involvements
Provine’s research and teaching have focused on law and courts, and particularly on their capacity to achieve justice. In recent years, she has become immersed in the implications of living undocumented in the United States and elsewhere. The political debate around those who have settled without authorization tends to be legalistic, but at bottom the differences are what it means to be a member of society in the contemporary era. She is active in the effort to protect rights and liberties in Arizona through the local affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union, Mi Familia Vota, and the Arizona Advocacy Network.
