Law and Gender

Contact: Prof. Dr. Susanne Baer, LL.M. (Michigan), Prof. Dr. Beate Binder

The research focus “Law and Gender” connects gender studies with a feminist approach to legal studies. The latter serves as a critical perspective on law and has always been interdisciplinary and intersectional.

Therefore, the research focus aims both at bringing together scholars who work on questions of law and gender from different disciplinary perspectives and at introducing gender as an intersectional category in all research activities at LSI Berlin.
