Sara Greene is a Professor of Law at Duke. She received her JD from Yale Law School and her PhD in social policy and sociology from Harvard University in 2014. Greene also practiced housing law and tax credit matters at the law firm Klein Hornig in Boston.
Greene’s areas of expertise include consumer bankruptcy and debt, poverty law, housing law, tax, contracts, access to justice, and qualitative research methods. Greene’s research uses interdisciplinary methods to better understand the relationship between law and inequality. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in the New York University Law Review, the Duke Law Journal, the Minnesota Law Review, and the American Bankruptcy Law Journal, among others. Greene, along with others, integrated her research on the Earned Income Tax Credit into a federal policy proposal, “The Rainy Day EITC: A Reform to Boost Financial Security by Helping Low Wage Workers Build Emergency Savings.” Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Jerry Moran (R-KS) adopted the proposal and are co-sponsors of a bipartisan bill proposing the “Refund to Rainy Day Savings Act.”
