Risk Policy and Law Specialty Group

The Risk Policy and Law (RP&L) Specialty Group of the Society for Risk Analysis is a group of scientists, social scientists, lawyers, engineers, and others interested in the interface between risk analysis, public policy, and laws. The RP&L Specialty Group was formerly called the “Risk, Science & Law” Specialty Group; it changed its name in 2006. The group’s goal is to support collaborative research and dialogue to identify and illuminate issues that arise from risk-related legislative acts, regulatory rules, treaties, oversight and review mechanisms, judicial proceedings, and other legal institutions.

Members are encouraged to provide suggestions and ideas for future activities.


Chair: Sweta Chakraborty
