PROGRAMMING UPDATE (AS OF FEBRUARY 2022): LAPA is on a planned hiatus during the academic year 2021-22, without any visiting fellows or events. An advertisement for a set of visiting positions in law at Princeton in 2022-23 is now posted.

Note: LEGS is still active during the academic year.


The Program in Law and Public Affairs (LAPA) explores the role of law in politics, society, the economy, and culture in the United States, countries around the world, and across national borders. Through its programming, teaching, and research initiatives, LAPA combines the multidisciplinary expertise of Princeton's faculty with the knowledge provided by leading academic and practical experts on American, international, and comparative law.  This extraordinary legal community provides an exciting forum for rethinking the role of law across the disciplines and for addressing the complex problems of the 21st century.
