| DIANA CULP BORK HAS BEEN at the center of the civil justice reform movement for fifteen years both in private practice and in government. Her work has been instrumental in the struggle to restore balance to the American legal system. Many of the reforms she helped develop were passed by Congress.
For example, Ms. Bork served as Reporter to the Federal Courts Study Committee, a blue-ribbon panel of judges, practitioners and academics appointed by Chief Justice Rehnquist to evaluate and recommend changes in the operation and management of the federal court system. Later, as Senior Counsel in the Office of Policy Development at the U.S. Department of Justice she worked with then-Solicitor General Kenneth Starr and Vice President Dan Quayle's office to develop an extensive package of civil justice reform policy recommendations for Congress. After a tour as Deputy General Counsel at the U.S. Department of Education, Ms. Bork returned to legal policy as head of the Manhattan Institute's Washington office. There she directed the Institute's activities including work on application of the Supreme Court's Daubert decision regarding the use of science in the courtroom. She also organized and directed the first national conference in Alabama on the crisis on that state's legal system.
Her work at Bork Communication Group focuses on special projects involving legal policy particularly in the area of civil justice reform.
She has been published in The Wall Street Journal, The National Law Journal, Metropolitan Corporate Counsel and several law journals on a wide range of legal issues.
Ms. Bork was graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School and summa cum laude from Occidental College. She has practiced with Hill & Barlow in Boston and Covington & Burling in Washington, D.C.
