The PAL Team

We gather together scholars from multiple countries, disciplinary backgrounds, and traditions of inquiry and have been granted the status of an International Research Collaborative (IRC) by the Law and Society Association (LSA).

We are currently focusing on a comparative study of autocratic legalism in Brazil, India, and South Africa (PAL-BISA).
