Professor Linda Mulcahy, the Director of the Centre for Socio-legal Studies has recently been appointed a member of the UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship Panel College. The Future Leaders Fellowships aims to grow the strong supply of talented individuals needed to ensure a vibrant environment for research and innovation in the UK.

The scheme is open to researchers and innovators from across business, universities, and other organisations. The Future Leaders Fellowships scheme has been developed with unprecedented levels of flexibility to support applicants from a wide range of experiences, disciplines and sectors. The goals of the scheme fit in well with the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies' strategic plan in which it aspires to be an international training centre for socio-legal work.
