Legal Scholarship at Princeton

Legal scholarship thrives at Princeton across campus, and in many academic departments. Several programs and groups on campus organize and foster legal scholarship, including Law@Princeton, the Law-Engaged Graduate Students (LEGS), the Program in Law and Normative Thinking, the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions, and the Program in Law and Public Policy (P*LAW).


The Program in Law and Public Policy (P*LAW) follows in the tradition of Princeton’s great law and public affairs programs past, engaging leading legal scholars and practitioners in the work of solving the complex policy problems of the 21st century. Part of the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs, P*LAW hosts distinguished law faculty fellows, supports interdisciplinary research on questions of law and public policy, and sponsors workshops and events aimed at advancing public understanding of law’s role in shaping policy decision-making in the United States and around the world.
