Established in 1975, the Committee on Law and Justice’s independent, expert reports and other scientific activities identify new areas of research; assist in resolving scientific controversies; extend the research agenda in established areas; promote theory development; and advance research-based policies. The committee accomplishes these tasks through presentations, workshops, seminars, symposia, and studies on various topics of interest to the field.
The mission of the Committee on Law and Justice is to improve governmental decision making and public policy, and promote the understanding and dissemination of research in matters involving law and justice.
