Research in the Law Faculty ranges widely across the varied disciplines in legal studies that are listed in the column on the right hand side of this page. 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.
Research in the Law Faculty is supported by grants from a range of funders including the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the Aviation Working Group, the British Academy, the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the European Commission, the Leverhulme Trust, the Open Society Foundation, the Oxford-Martin School, the Netherlands Research Organisation (NWO), and the Nuffield Foundation.
