About Us

The Program in Law and Public Policy (P*LAW) follows in the tradition of Princeton University’s great law and public affairs programs, engaging leading legal scholars and practitioners in the work of solving the complex problems of the 21st century. Part of the School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton, P*LAW hosts distinguished law faculty fellows, advances interdisciplinary research on questions of law and public policy, and supports courses, workshops, and events aimed at advancing understanding of law’s role in shaping policy decision-making in the United States and around the world.  P*LAW faculty affiliates teach and publish widely on topics from constitutional law and U.S. history to criminal justice, technology and foreign relations, engaging the University, the Princeton community, and the general public about the many ways law impacts American life.
