Law and Society Review Blog

Inspired by blogs for Gender and Society, WPSA (New West) and MPSA, the current editors of Law and Society Review are starting a blog, to be hosted on the LSA web page. We welcome the following sorts of blog entries:

1. Discussion of an LSR article;
2. Book discussion;
3. Research summary.

Entries will:
▪ Focus on sociolegal perspectives on the world;
▪ Be between 400-650 words in length;
▪ Be written to appeal to general readers.

Please include visuals when possible (e.g. graphs, charts, free-for-use pictures; if you use your own pictures, please make sure you have the permission of any people depicted).

Please include a short title for the piece, as well as your full name and university affiliation (if relevant).

Please email your blog entry for posting to
