2015 marks the second full year of operations for the Center on Law in Metropolitan Equity, and we are busy expanding the discourse on structural—often place-based—inequality in the Greater Rutgers University Newark region and across metropolitan America.

While we continue to publish the work of our own students, we now look forward to publishing the work of emerging and established scholars from across Rutgers University.
