School of Law
The School of Law enjoys a long-standing reputation as one of the UK's most distinguished centres of excellence for the study of law, legal processes and related issues.
We have more than seventy highly regarded academics and researchers working in areas of inquiry that cover most of the law together with social ethics and criminology. Many of them are leading experts in their fields.
Our research and scholarship is both pure and applied, domestic and international. It reflects a diversity of approaches that range across the theoretical and empirical, the historical, doctrinal and socio-legal, and which draw on inter-disciplinary insights wherever appropriate.
In Research Assessment Exercises (RAE), the School of Law has consistently maintained high levels of national and international research excellence in various fields of scholarship.
