The Legal Priorities Project is an independent, global research project founded by researchers from Harvard University. We conduct legal research that tackles the world’s most pressing problems – we call this “legal priorities
We aim to establish “legal priorities research” as a new research field. We currently focus on four cause areas: law and governance of advanced artificial intelligence, synthetic biology, institutional design, and meta-research. Our research is influenced by the principles of effective altruism and the longtermism paradigm.
We recently launched a Working Paper Series on SSRN to disseminate our research more widely within the legal academic community. It includes some very recent pieces produced by our teammates and affiliates.
