Criminal procedure, guilty pleas, constitutional rights, and policing.
Kate Doyle Feingold graduated from the CLS program earning her PhD in May 2020. For her dissertation research she created an educational program for youth to teach them their rights when they are stopped or interrogated by police and ran a randomized control trial to test its effectiveness. The video-based program had positive and significant effects, reducing the number of serious misconceptions youth had about their rights. The video is now publicly available: www.youtube.com/c/katedoylefeingold. Kate is also a licensed attorney, with a JD from George Washington University. Prior to entering the CLS program at Mason, she worked as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney at the Eastern District Court of Virginia in Alexandria, and served for eight years in the Marine Corps in various assignments including investigator for the Inspector General of the Marine Corps, as a defense counsel, prosecutor, and civil law attorney.
