Impact through Contact.

The Center for Law and Policy was created in 2012 as an initiative by the Department of Legal Studies in the College of Community Innovation and Education at the University of Central Florida. Tasked with both supporting the department’s faculty in their research and scholarship endeavors, the Center also seeks to create positive change in the community through supporting professionalism and education in the legal arena. The Center believes in the philosophy of Impact through Contact. By fostering contact with the Legal Studies faculty, contact with the UCF student body, and contact with the Central Florida Community, the Center makes a positive impact in the discourse of legal policy among academics, practitioners, and students of the law. If you are interested in working with the Center in any one of these capacities or simply want to learn more about what we do, please explore our website or contact us directly. The Center is always looking for ways to create partnerships and support relationships that serve to better our community.
