Joellen Lind Satterlee (Joellen Lind) joined Loyola University Chicago as a visiting professor in 2017. She teaches American Legal History, Civil Procedure, and Remedies. Before coming to Loyola, she was a member of the full-time law faculty at Valparaiso University teaching the same classes, as well as Constitutional Law (The Bill of Rights, equal protection, and procedural and substantive due process), Gender and the Law, and Jurisprudence. She also served as an Associate Dean for Faculty Development at that institution. Professor Lind began her teaching career at McGeorge School of Law of the University of the Pacific. She has also served as a visiting professor at Indiana University, Robert H. McKinney School of Law, and Wayne State University School of Law.

Her research focuses on structural features of the American legal system that affect the distribution of legal and political rights. In particular, she examines the use of procedural rules to determine substantive outcomes and access to justice. She has written significant articles on the history of the women’s suffrage movement, as well as the impact of economic theory on damages for violation of rights. Professor Lind has received numerous teaching awards. The graduating classes of 2015 and 2016 of Valparaiso University Law School elected her Faculty Advisor, an award that calls for the honoree to deliver a commencement address at graduation. Professor Lind is a former litigator and partner in a large metropolitan law firm. She graduated from Stanford University Phi Beta Kappa with a double major in history and philosophy and earned her JD from UCLA, where she was a member of the law review. She has also pursued a PhD in political philosophy, and combines her graduate work in philosophy with a focus on history and rights theory. Access to, and suppression of, the voting right has consistently been a key feature of her work.
