Students who are accepted into our MA and PhD programs will join a faculty with a strong commitment to research and scholarship. We are involved in the building of an academic community of socio–legal scholars through our participation and leadership in professional associations as well as through our projects and published work. Our program consists of scholars drawn from law and society, criminology, political science, sociology, psychology, history, communication studies, women's studies, and law.
