Maybell Romero researches and teaches at the intersection of criminal law, criminal adjudication, and professional responsibility. She has recently started writing about and studying rape and sexual assault, particularly by using unorthodox methods such as autoethnography as well as art criticism.

Much of her writing is informed by her nearly 10 years of law practice as a prosecutor, defense attorney, and general practitioner in a small community in northern Utah. Her work has featured or is forthcoming in a variety of publications, including the Virginia Law Review, the Georgetown Law Journal, the Washington University Law Review, the Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology, and the University of Chicago Law Review Online.

Prior to joining Tulane Law in the fall of 2021, she was a member of the faculty of Northern Illinois University College of Law. Before that she was a Visiting Assistant Professor at the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University.
