We created NuLawMaps to enhance quantitative data with human stories told through a variety of digital media.  The maps accessible here currently showcase the interdisciplinary research and advocacy work of Northeastern University faculty and students, as well as the project work of the NuLawLab. We seek collaborators with ideas for using NuLawMaps to advance the movement for universal legal empowerment.
