Law of Law Center leverages the expertise of a wide range of scholars, designers, and field experts invested in studying and developing innovations in U.S. legal services and legal regulation.
The Center is committed to building an evidence base of theoretically-driven scholarship across multiple academic disciplines, as demonstrated by the diversity of the inaugural group of affiliated scholars. The Center also seeks to promote research and programmatic output that is accessible and valuable to policymakers, courts, bar associations, and other stakeholders.
