Boalt Hosts Law and Society Summer Institute
On July 16-20, Boalt Hall is co-hosting the Law and Society Association’s 10th annual summer institute, Justice in a Changing World. The meeting will examine justice in sociolegal studies and compelling issues of justice in modern times. Session topics include “Hate Crimes and Neighborhood Violence: Domestic Terrorism and Civil Rights;” “Nation Building, Transitional Regimes and Constitutionalism;” and “Cross National Comparisons of National Drug Control Policies.” The institute gives advanced graduate students and junior faculty the opportunity to discuss law and society research with more senior scholars.
