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.

Our work 

We distil academic expertise and analysis in order to inform practitioners and the public with knowledge of immediate relevance to their work. Through our research programmes, we explore the interconnections between law, economics, politics, and society.

Our publications

We are committed to disseminating our work to a wide audience in academia and beyond. Our reports, working papers, and policy briefs provide digestible yet authoritative perspectives on issues confronting today's professionals. Over one hundred publications are freely available to download from our website. Browse Publications
