Princeton LPE


Princeton’s LPE chapter brings together graduate students and research scholars from diverse disciplines. Our members, many of whom are trained as lawyers or plan to pursue legal education, build on the LPE framework to inspire and inform their scholarship and policy advocacy. We host speakers and informal events to build community among members–with particular focus on such topics as racial capitalism and criminal punishment; corporate power and informational capitalism; emerging topics in land use, housing policy, and dispossession; the political economy of the welfare state; and labor struggles and community organizing. Our aim is to foster conversations and scholarship on campus about the effects and construction of “law,” as well as the consequences of economic and social inequality for legal processes and institutions. We aim to encourage collaboration between scholars at Princeton and at law schools, while bridging divides between legal scholarship and other academic disciplines.
