About the Stanford Law and Policy Society
The Stanford Law and Policy Society was founded in 2004 to address a long-felt need in the Stanford Law School community. While there existed publications that discussed policy (such as the Stanford Law & Policy Review) as well as several issue-centric organizations, there was no centralized forum for students to learn about policy advocacy, network, and effect change.

Today over 50 active members comprise the core of the Stanford Law and Policy Society. In addition, many students attend events organized by SLAPS, ranging from career panels, to advocacy workshops, to colloquia on individual topics.
