01.06.21 — Professor Ari Ezra Waldman, a leading authority on law, technology and society, has been appointed to a three-year term on the editorial board of Law & Social Inquiry (LSI), a peer-reviewed journal that publishes work on sociolegal issues across multiple disciplines, including anthropology, criminology, economics, history, law, philosophy, political science, sociology and social psychology. Published four times a year by the American Bar Foundation and Cambridge University Press, LSI is among the highest-ranked scholarly journals in the field of sociolegal studies. LSI publishes the work of leading scholars from around the world and regularly features symposia on new developments in sociolegal scholarship.

“It is such an honor to serve on the editorial board of Law & Social Inquiry. The journal is a locus of profound scholarship, and being an editor will give me the privilege and honor not only to see what's going on at the vanguard of our field, but also to foster and incubate sociolegal scholarship on equality, democracy, critical theory, and so much more, especially work from traditionally underrepresented groups. On a personal note, my first peer-reviewed article was published in LSI, so serving on the LSI board has special meaning to me,” said Waldman, author of Privacy As Trust: Information Privacy for an Information Age (Cambridge University Press, 2018) and Industry Unbound: Privacy, Practice, and Corporate Power (Cambridge University Press, forthcoming 2021).
