Award: Fulbright Irish Scholar - All Disciplines
Institution: University College Dublin
Dr Joe McGrath is an Assistant Professor at the Sutherland School of Law at UCD. His first monograph, Corporate and White Collar Crime in Ireland: A New Architecture of Regulatory Enforcement, was published by Manchester University Press. His second book, White-Collar Crime in Ireland: Law and Policy, which he edited and co-authored, was published by Clarus Press. He has also published in the leading international peer-reviewed journals in his field, including the European Journal of Criminology, Justice Quarterly, and Punishment and Society. His Fulbright award will be based at the Center for the Study of Law and Society at UC Berkeley. He will research a project entitled “Punishing Privilege” in which he investigates the extent to which federal responses to white-collar crime are formally punitive but practically lenient. It also explores the extent to which legal responses to wrongdoing vary by reference to gender, race, and elite status.
