The Center in Law, Society and Culture (CLSC) brings together UC Irvine faculty and graduate students who share interests in law, society, and culture, broadly defined. Issues of interest to center affiliates include race, law and justice; law and literature; critical legal theory; legal consciousness; law and space; legal philosophy, culture and policing; the interaction of local and international legal cultures; globalization; migration; knowledge production; law, science, and society; and law and history.
CLSC sponsors the Critical Legalities Symposia, which focus on a particular theme, feature presentations by UCI faculty and outside speakers, and include a workshop structured around central issues. Additionally, CLSC holds quarterly meetings, in which the recent work of an affiliate is presented and discussed, and funds a variety of campus activities, including colloquia, workshops, conferences, events, and graduate student reading groups.
All CLSC symposia and colloquia are free and open to the campus community and the public.

The Advisory Board of the Center in Law, Society and Culture seeks applications from qualified graduate students for the 2013-14 Peterson/Microsemi fellowship program. The Peterson fellowship program has been made possible through a gift from Jim Peterson, CEO on behalf of Microsemi Corporation, which has been a generous supporter of Center activities over the past 4 years. Subject to funding availability, we plan to appoint three Peterson Fellows in the 2013-14 academic year.
