The School of Law is a centre of research excellence. We have a lively and inclusive research culture, with our academic staff and research students securing major grants, publishing leading textbooks, and winning awards.
Research by members of the school has been cited by courts and other bodies, and our academics are often called upon to offer expert advice by governments and organisations in the UK and internationally.
The school is also home to respected journals such as the Human Rights Law Review, and to six world-leading research centres and groups.
Our research centres and groups broadly focus on conflict, security, and terrorism; criminal law and criminal justice; human rights; and public procurement. The school also has a number of research areas that our academics focus on.
We welcome academic visitors and are proud of our well-established post of J C Smith Trust Fund Visiting Scholar scheme, successfully welcoming visitors since 1990.
