We are located in the Grant Sawyer Center for Justice Studies on the campus of the University of Nevada, Reno. The Center for Justice Studies was established at the University of Nevada, Reno, in the fall of 1992. The Center operates state-wide as one of the land-grant functions of the University. It was established out of a recognition that one of the timeless areas of citizen concern is justice at all levels of society. This concern directs attention to scholarship, social policy, and the relationship between the two. The Center was created to stimulate scholarship that would generate information about justice issues which could form the basis for informed social policy.
