Seal of lady justice with a scroll with "Wisconsin Journal of Law, Gender and Society" around it

The Wisconsin Journal of Law, Gender & Society, originally the Wisconsin Women’s Law Journal founded in 1985, grew out of two traditions: the University of Wisconsin Law School’s “law in action” approach and the interdisciplinary design of gender studies.

Through “law in action” we look beyond the statutes and cases to study the practical effects of the law on both individuals and communities. The interdisciplinary approach offers different perspectives through which to expand and challenge our understanding of the law.
