Institute for Law, Justice & Society

A part of the College of Leadership and Public Service, the Institute for Law, Justice & Society is based on the idea that legal change is one of the surest means to effect social change. Here, we consider America’s legal system from a multidisciplinary perspective to get a fuller understanding of its mechanisms, practice, and consequences.
