Welcome to the Center for Justice, Law, and Societies.
The Center for Justice, Law, and Societies (CJLS) strives to foster research, teaching, and public engagement related to bias, inequity, and inequality in justice systems. We provide a vehicle to support interdisciplinary research that is policy-relevant and also theoretically generative. We bring together faculty and graduate students across the University working on Law and Society topics that are vital to domestic governance, such as access to justice for vulnerable populations, how court decision making shapes public policy, and the relationship between law and new technologies. In addition to our expertise in domestic justice systems, we also pressing global challenges, supporting research related to international law, globalization, migration, and cross-border conflict resolution.
