George Lovell (Ph.D., University of Michigan, 1997) is Divisional Dean of Social Sciences, Professor of Political Science, Professor in Law, Societies, and Justice at the University of Washington. He studies legal processes, political institutions, American political development, labor, and constitutional theory.   His published research has focused on the sources and consequences of judicial power and on how American law influences the way people respond to injustice and organize for political power. He has explored these questions in a range of contexts including early 20th Century worker organizing, rights related protests during Franklin Roosevelt’s presidency, and immigrant political activism in the Pacific Northwest. 

Professor Lovell has previously served as Chair of Department of Political Science and as the Harry Bridges Endowed Chair and Director of the Bridges Center for Labor Studies.  He is the author of This is Not Civil Rights: Discovering Rights Talk in 1939 America and Legislative Deferrals as well as numerous articles in scholarly journals.
