Windsor Law is home to a talented group of active researchers interested in all fields of legal theory and practice, from aboriginal rights to Zimbabwean property law. We engage in diverse research methods including theoretical, jurisprudential, doctrinal, metaphysical, practical, empirical, skills-based inquiry and interdisciplinary.
Our mission is to value all research that advances frontiers of knowledge about law and justice, law’s role in modern society, its transformative applications and its limitations. Windsor Law has built an international intellectual reputation for two institutional themes: access to justice and Canadian United States legal issues.
The Windsor Yearbook of Access to Justice is a bilingual, peer-reviewed journal that has charted the struggles of legally marginalized groups for 30 years. The yearbook is unique among law journals in that it draws from a broad range of academic disciplines including sociology, anthropology, psychology, criminology and philosophy. Our other peer-reviewed law journal is the Windsor Review of Legal and Social Issues
The Transnational Law and Justice (TLJ) is an umbrella research organization for Windsor Law’s scholarship on social justice and transnational issues. It was formed by the joining of the Canadian-American Research Center for Law and Policy (CARC) and the Centre for Law in Aid of Development (CLAD).
