Center in Law, Society and Culture

Visit Department Website

The Center in Law, Society and Culture (CLSC) brings together UC Irvine faculty and graduate students who share interests in law, society, and culture, broadly defined.

Through workshops, colloquia, and support for interdisciplinary projects and activities, the Center works to generate new scholarship and disseminate knowledge to diverse audiences about issues related to: race, law and justice; law and literature; critical legal theory; law and space; legal philosophy and culture; globalization and migration; knowledge production; legal consciousness; law, science, and society; and law and history.

The Center encourages substantive intellectual exchanges among and between scholars and community members, facilitates both informal and formal educational opportunities, and supports faculty and graduate students in developing interdisciplinary scholarship.

In addition to hosting and co-hosting campus events throughout the year, the Center coordinates the Graduate Emphasis in Law, Society and Culture (LSC) and collaborates in hosting the Socio-Legal Workshop series.
