About the Foundation for Law, Justice and Society

Bridging the gap between academia and policymaking

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.

Established in 2005, the mission of the Foundation is to study, reflect on, and promote an understanding of the role of law in society. 
We identify 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. Our aim is to make our work easily accessible to professionals in government, business, or the law, and in so doing, to bridge the gap between academia and policymaking. 
We bring together the world's top thinkers  at our international programme of events, and disseminate the insights and analysis of leading decision-makers through policy briefings, reports, and multimedia podcasts
Law, Justice and Society at Wolfson
In 2012 we 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.
Alongside our research programmes, our partnership with the College provides opportunities to explore a wide range of issues relating to law and society.
