RESEARCH INTEREST GROUPS

BACK TO UoA

The Law School has 10 research interest groups. These smaller, less formal groups adopt a multidisciplinary approach encompassing a range of emerging and topical themes. Groups are designed to bring researchers together in a focused way but the boundaries are also fluid to support cross-group collaborations.  

Research interest groups cover a rich and interesting range of topical areas, from international human rights and mental health to the internet and fashion law. Our members undertake quality research, supervise PhD students and co-ordinate events in their areas of expertise. Find out more about our research interest groups below
