Find Faculty Scholarship in Chicago Unbound
Chicago Unbound contains the scholarship of the University of Chicago Law School community.
As national concern over police misconduct and violence has grown over the last decade, scholars have increasingly looked to data to better understand the complex issues at play and to examine potential reforms. Many Law School professors are leaders in this work—fighting for access to records, explaining the limitations of policing data, and using empirical research to explore patterns in police behavior, complaints, discipline, intervention, and much more.
Professor Martha C. Nussbaum’s late daughter inspired a passion for nonhuman animals. Now, Nussbaum’s new book Justice for Animals extends her capabilities approach beyond humans, and her latest gift to the Law School establishes the Rachel Nussbaum Animal Law Scholarship.
