100: Live Law NSF

Email a Friend
The US Constitution sets the rules for how our our society is governed. Lawyers and advocates, legislators and lobbyists, judges and courts work to enforce it, or change it. All the while, legal and social scholars work behind the scenes for years, often decades conducting research that gets to the heart of the history, evolution, practice, and potential of the law in our society.

To celebrate Life of the Law's 100th Episode, Life of the Law and the National Science Foundation brought five NSF funded scholars to the NSF Headquarters in Washington DC to share their stories, personal experiences, professional challenges and discoveries about free speech and the judiciary, children and the legal system, imprisonment and culture, family law and poverty, hate crimes, and incivility in society.
