Center on Applied Feminism

The Center on Applied Feminism serves as a bridge between feminist legal theory and the law.

Unique within the legal academy, the Center seeks to apply feminist insights to legal practice

and the policy arena. In particular, the Center will examine how feminist theory can benefit legal practitioners in representing clients, shape legal doctrine, and play a role in policy debates and implementation. The Center has faculty affiliates from throughout the University.
