Law, Justice and Society at Wolfson

Law, Justice and Society at Wolfson is a collaboration between the Foundation for Law, Justice and Society (FLJS) and Wolfson College, which works to promote an understanding of the role of law in society.

Bringing together the world's top thinkers and practitioners, our aim is to make research on issues of contemporary interest and importance accessible to a wide audience, and to involve the professional, business, and political sectors in our work.

Through our research programmes, we explore the interconnections between law, economics, politics, and society.

Platforms, Governance, and Global Society (PGG)

Our Publications

We are committed to disseminating our work to a wide audience in academia and beyond.
