The Center for Law and Humanities is committed to the interdisciplinary study of law in concert with the fundamental humanistic principles that underpin Western theories of justice. The scholars affiliated with the Center work to bring critical intellectual tools from the humanistic disciplines and the broader arts and sciences to bear on the law in order to understand the evolution of the law, measure the effect of legal developments on society, and explore possible futures for the law emerging from humanistic principles. The Center will invite scholars, legal practitioners, and policymakers of note to speak to the community at large on topics at the intersection of law, humanities, and society. It will also pursue legal and scholarly ventures that further its goals of encouraging critical interdisciplinary study of the law, including periodically publishing scholarly papers, encouraging public discussion of important legal issues, and advancing graduate and undergraduate student research in law and humanities.
