Postgraduate research programmes

Legal research spans the social sciences and humanities. As scholars, we investigate law’s possibilities: its provisions, implementation and practices. We produce research that explores the difficulties and dilemmas of human experience.

Our research students work in diverse subject areas, engaging with a wide range of approaches to legal research (doctrinal, socio-legal/interdisciplinary and theoretical). Their many and varied projects reflect the breadth of their research interests as well as those of our academic staff.
