Research

The Baldy Center uses multiple means to advance interdisciplinary research on law, legal institutions, and social policy.

The Baldy Center advances interdisciplinary research on law, legal institutions, and social policy. We award research grants to faculty members and support conferences and workshops focused on critical issues. Our Baldy Center postdoctoral fellows and senior fellows intensively engage in their research during funded residencies at The Baldy Center. Our international network of scholars and globally accessible working paper series keep us connected as we catalyze new work in the complex mosaic of law and social policy research.

We award research fellowships in interdisciplinary legal studies
