Research in the Department of Law

Research is a crucial element within the mission of the Department of Law. We have installed a strong research culture across the department which underpins our high-quality teaching and forms both an essential part of the day-to-day intellectual activities of our academic staff and the development strategy of the school as a whole.

The role of research within the legal profession continues to grow as areas of law gain more prominence in everyday life, and as such so does the extensiveness of the research we perform.

All staff are actively engaged in research and scholarship and participate in the wider academic research community. Particular areas of research strength are:

  • Criminal justice and dispute justice
  • Public, European and environmental law
  • Law and technology
  • Employment law
  • International economic and corporate law
