Mariam Malik

Mariam Malik is studying the interaction between judges and attorneys during oral arguments in state courts. She is focusing on the number and quality of the questions that judges ask to see if their behavior is consistent under different institutional arrangements.  She will also examine whether the number of questions that judges pose correlates with their decision in the case. She is working with Dr. Justin Wedeking in the Department of Political Science.
