Funding Opportunities For Those In Law and Social Science From the NSF

Funding opportunities from the National Sciences Foundation. Target dates are January 24, 2012 and July 12, 2012.

Synopsis:

The Law & Social Sciences Program considers proposals that address social scientific studies of law and law-like systems of rules.  The program is inherently interdisciplinary and multi-methodological.  Successful proposals describe research that advances scientific theory and understanding of the connections between law or legal processes and human behavior.  Social scientific studies of law often approach law as dynamic, made in multiple arenas, with the participation of multiple actors.  Fields of study include many disciplines, and often address problems including though not limited to:

  1. Crime, Violence and Punishment
  2. Economic Issues
  3. Governance
  4. Legal Decisionmaking
  5. Legal Mobilization and Conceptions of Justice
  6. Litigation and the Legal Profession

LSS provides the following modes of support:

  1. Standard Research Grants and Grants for Collaborative Research
  2. Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants
  3. Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellowships
  4. Workshop and Conference Proposals
