The Institute sponsors lectures, conferences, and symposia designed to foster discussion and debate between legal scholars, sitting judges, and working journalists. The Institute provides research grants and seed money for scholars pursuing law-oriented projects that cut across traditional academic boundaries. The Institute also oversees a cross-disciplinary graduate certificate program organized around a team-taught course offerings.

Description: Legal systems operate in a complex environment of principle, political pressure, and media coverage. The goal of the Law, Politics, & the Media subject journal is to publish abstracts of working papers and articles that promote a more integrated understanding of law, courts, and their environment. To this end, the journal seeks scholarship that addresses any combination of legal, political, and media-related themes in the analysis of legal institutions, beliefs, and practices. The journal is open to work from the social sciences, the humanities, and the legal academy. Papers and articles that focus on the United States, as well as scholarship that is comparative or international in scope, are welcome.
