About Your Professor

Professor Jason M. Leggett is an Assistant Professor in the Criminal Justice Program located in the Department of Behavioral Sciences. I have been teaching at Kingsborough since 2010 and have also taught at Barnard College in the Diversity Summer Program. I teach legal studies courses including Constitutional Law, the U.S. Judiciary, Introduction to Law and Society, and Environmental Law and Politics. I conduct social science research that focuses on the gap between formal legal language & processes and everyday understanding of legality. I am particularly interested in how people who experience injustice might mobilize using rights talk against those injustices. I have published articles about culturally responsive and sustaining teaching practices, civic learning & democratic engagement, equitable uses of technology in education, and legal mobilization. I have also worked as an advisor and organizers on social issues including homelessness, immigration, climate change, racism, reproductive rights, and educational equality.

the best way to contact me is through the Kingsborough email: jason.leggett@kbcc.cuny.edu
