Professors Marc Galanter, Stewart Macaulay and David Trubek all received the association’s first annual Legacy Award in recognition of their contributions to LSA’s mission and legacy. Trubek also received the Ronald Pipkin Award for his sustained and extraordinary service to the association.

LSA is one of the leading organizations for scholars interested in researching law in social, political, economic and cultural life. Galanter and Macaulay both served as LSA presidents in the 1980s, and Trubek is a former LSA trustee. In honoring their service, current president Kim Lane Scheppele noted, “We would not be here if it were not for their hard work and selfless dedication to blazing the trail for the rest of us.”

Wisconsin has been at the forefront of law and society scholarship, even before the founding of the association in 1964. This year’s meeting, which included many UW Law faculty, staff, affiliates and S.J.D. candidates, illustrates the school's ongoing influence in the field.

Professor Heinz Klug served as co-chair of the 2019 meeting; Professors Tonya Brito and Mitra Sharafi are current LSA trustees. UW Law faculty and staff participating in this year’s event include:
