Impact and Engagement

people looking at the liberty building

The School of Law has an international reputation for interdisciplinary research that transforms policy and practice, improves professional practice and shapes intellectual debates.

Our wide and varied portfolio of research relates to real world problems, through methodological innovation, doctrinal insights or rich empirical evidence.

We are committed to a collaborative approach and are proud to work closely with local, national and international organisations to address some of the most significant challenges of the day.

Our team of academic experts frequently gain international recognition for their work and regularly advise governments, provide media commentary, work with non-governmental organisations and engage with communities across the world.
