Law and Society 2021

Criminology and Law at UC Press

Our publishing program in criminology and law acts as a catalyst for change, one that showcases a rich fabric of global, multi-disciplinary inquiry that informs pressing questions about—and creative solutions to—equal access to justice in the world.

It’s a vibrant, award-winning destination for critical voices that confront the criminal justice crisis and interregotate the ways in which the law drives inequality. Many of our authors identify as scholar-activists, and they work tirelessly to dismantle systems of oppression in marginalized communities and throughout the criminal legal system.

Our titles speak to the urgent debates roiling in our country right now about how to reform or rethink the building blocks of criminal injustice: racial inequities, parole, cash bail, police brutality, carceral politics, immigration detention, surveillance, and police-community relations, just for starters.
