The School of Law has scheduled seven live online webinars to showcase the wide range of research undertaken by the Departments of Law and Criminology, as well as the Institute for Crime and Justice Policy Research (ICPR).

The ‘Summer Research Series’ will feature a number of researchers, over the next few weeks, sharing their latest research with the public through the live events.

Dr Sappho Xenakis, Assistant Dean for Research, said, “This series presents a snapshot of the research currently being undertaken at the School, and reflects a number of key thematic areas around which work in the School pivot, and, more generally, a critical and interdisciplinary approach to legal, socio-legal and criminological scholarship that is the School's hallmark.”
