The University Center is a principal sponsor of Princeton's Program in Law and Public Affairs (LAPA), established to create at Princeton an interdisciplinary legal community for examining the role of law in politics, society, the economy, and culture in the United States, in countries around the world, and across national borders. Each year, LAPA brings to Princeton a select group of legal scholars for a year-long fellowship as well as American and international visitors from the academy, legal practice, and government, who participate in seminars, conferences, and conversations that consider how law contributes to the search for solutions to complex problems of the 21st century. LAPA sponsors a wide range of programming, teaching, and research for undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and fellow academics from many disciplines and the public. Paul Frymer is the director.
