Law & Social Sciences (LSS)(nsf12507)

The Law & Social Sciences Program considers proposals that address
social scientific studies of law and law-like systems of rules. The
program is inherently interdisciplinary and multi-methodological.
Successful proposals describe research that advances scientific
theory and understanding of the connections between law or legal
processes and human behavior. Social scientific studies of law
often approach law as dynamic, made in multiple arenas, with the
participation of multiple actors. Fields of study include many
disciplines, and often address problems including though not
limited to:

1. Crime, Violence and Punishment
2. Economic Issues
3. Governance
4. Legal Decisionmaking
5. Legal Mobilization and Conceptions of Justice
6. Litigation and the Legal Profession

 

LSS provides the following modes of support

1. Standard Research Grants and Grants for Collaborative Research
2. Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants
3. Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellowships
4. Workshop and Conference Proposals
