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.
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.
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

Steve Empson observes two coastal communities, in Kent and Co Durham, he considers to be similar in many aspects. Both places are out on a limb, and he sees them as being quirky and attractively at the edge of society. In paintings and drawings of mixed media, he attempts to get across his feeling for these places.
