Social Justice and Human Rights (SJHR)
Current SJHR members are researching the regulation of gender and sexuality (GSL), social justice, with a focus on material inequality, and human rights theory and practice.
Healthcare Law And Bioethics (HLB)
This research field builds upon the School of Law’s longstanding tradition of excellence in moral philosophy, applied ethics, socio-legal scholarship and Gender, Sexuality and Law inquiries, as applied to areas of healthcare.
Private Law: Theory And Practice (PLTP)
This is an emerging area of research strength at the Law School, benefiting from and utilising inter-disciplinary methodologies.
Ageing and Social Care (ASC) builds upon the School of Law’s existing excellence in socio-legal, ethical, and doctrinal scholarship.
ASC focuses on ageing conceived of broadly as a longitudinal phenomenon, and therefore includes research on every aspect of the life course from early to mid-childhood, through to old age.
Professions, Practice, and Legal Education (PPLE)
Using inter-disciplinary methodologies (including sociological, anthropological, historical and philosophical work), PPLE scholars have produced leading theoretical work that has led to direct engagement with key policy-makers.
International and European Law (IEL)
International and European law (IEL) is a fast growing area of expertise within the Law School, combining policy and human rights analyses with jurisprudential, critical, postcolonial and feminist theory.
