LSA board of trustees

Each year, members of the Association from around the globe elect a class of eight individuals to serve on the Board of Trustees for three years.

“This year’s voting results represent a wide variety of law & society scholars stretching across the globe and consisting of rich and diverse interdisciplinary backgrounds, training and experience,” said current LSA President Penelope Andrews. “Our incoming officers will not only contribute to the sustainability and viability of the LSA, but also demonstrate the importance of advancing the entire field of sociolegal studies through their own personal scholarship and achievements.”

The Law and Society Association was established in 1964 and hosts the largest annual conference of law and society scholars in the world.  The Society also published the Law and Society Review which is the best known journal in the field.
