Law, Justice & Society
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.
The Institute for Sustainable Practice was a response to the new pollution, rising gas prices, and extreme weather in 2007. Since then, we’ve invited pioneering entrepreneurs, innovative scientists, creative engineers, visionary policy makers, and other sustainability leaders to share their proven insights, best practices, and research.
