The Foundation for Law, Justice and Society (FLJS)
is an independent institution affiliated with the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies and Wolfson College at the University of Oxford, United Kingdom.
Established in 2005, the mission of the Foundation is to study, reflect on, and promote an understanding of the role of law in society.
The Foundation identifies issues of contemporary interest and importance, and distil academic expertise and analysis in order to equip practitioners with knowledge of immediate relevance to their work. The aim of the Foundation is to make their work easily accessible to professionals in government, business, or the law, and in so doing, to bridge the gap between academia and policymaking.
The Foundation brings together the world's top thinkers at their international programme of events, and disseminate the insights and analysis of leading decision-makers through policy briefings, reports, and multimedia podcasts.
In 2012 the Foundation launched the Law, Justice and Society Research Cluster
at Wolfson College, one of a series of Research Clusters which take innovative approaches to interdisciplinary research.
FLJS runs four primary programmes:
- Courts and public policy
- European civil justice systems
- Regulation, law and governance
through which they explore the interconnections between law, economics, politics, and society. Their research covers issues from constitutions to Europe; from regulation to judicial decision-making.
The official website of the Foundation for Law, Justice and Society (FLJS) features:
* Searchable library of over 100 policy briefs and reports for accessible briefings and expert analysis.
* Media and resources where you can find multimedia content, expert commentary and resources for policymakers and the press
* News and events of lectures workshops, and panel debates, attended by lawyers, policymakers, academics and business people from around the world.
