Research

Research in the Law Faculty ranges widely across the varied disciplines in legal studies that are shown in the Law Map. We value research in which academics and research students choose the problems to address and the methods for addressing them, and we value research that is connected to our teaching. The Faculty facilitates research and supports interdisciplinary work in collaboration with other parts of the University and with other institutions in the UK and worldwide.

You can find writing by members of the Faculty through the people pages or on the Faculty Publications page, and you can find the work of the Faculty's research centres on their webpages.

Some of the research in the Law Faculty is supported by grants from external funders. The projects listed below are some of the current and recent externally-funded research projects.

 

For a separate list of doctoral theses submitted since 2012 see the Doctoral Research page.
