This summer join us for the June workshop Exploring The Law and Political Economy Difference.
The multiple crises of the 21st century — covid, climate, financial instability, inequality, and rising authoritarianism – have spurred a new intellectual movement, Law and Political Economy (LPE). More than a set of policy preferences, LPE aims to re-frame basic assumptions, ideals, and methods of analysis to guide a better way forward for law, state, and economy.

LPE both consolidates decades of social justice-oriented legal theory and develops it further to address new challenges. The workshop is organized by Martha T. McCluskey
