Diane Wood

“I hope that I will leave a legacy of sound legal opinions. Most of what I write is going to be the law for a long time, so I very much hope that is stands the test of time, and that people perceive me as someone who has been fair, willing to listen to them, and open to all points of view.”

Judge Diane Pamela Wood sits on the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and is senior lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School. She focuses on, among other things, the practical implications of the interpretation of the law, and she seeks to make her opinions accessible to the public as well as jurists.
