School of Law success in the University's 2021 Public Engagement with Research Awards

The 2021 Public Engagement with Research Awards recognises those who’ve embraced the challenges of the past 18 months and delivered innovative projects.

Applications were scored and reviewed by an all-external expert panel. Awards were presented in three categories to researchers from across a range of faculties and their wide-ranging public engagement (PE) and Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) collaborators.

School of Law academics, Dr Anna Barker, Dr David Churchill and Professor Adam Crawford were runners up in the “Outstanding PE/PPIE: Disseminating Research” category. Their PE activity linked to two research projects conducted in partnership with Leeds City Council Parks, Countryside Service, Leeds Parks and Green Spaces Forum. The civic project combined different forms of PE, including an exhibition, talks, social media campaign, think pieces and short films, which encouraged a diverse public audience to interact with both the history of parks, as well as the pressing contemporary challenges facing Leeds’ public green spaces.
