Research at Lincoln Law School

LAW_SCHOOL portrait black textResearch plays a central role in the life of the Law School, and is reflected in the publications of staff members, the engagement of staff at research conferences and a growing postgraduate research community.

Lincoln Law School continues to grow in size, and research is a primary driver of this development. These are exciting times to be involved in research at Lincoln Law School, where staff and students both recognise the value and importance of the research to the wider academic mission of the University. Staff are also engaged in consultancy and advisory work and have worked with charities, government departments, parliamentarians and international organisations. The School contributes to the wider research of the University, in particular the College of Social Science. Regular seminars allow colleagues across the College to explore areas of mutual interest. Research interests are wide-ranging, but there is particular expertise within the broad areas of International law, European law, and Human rights.  Current research includes work on health law, civil liberties, European social law and policy, corporate governance, dispute settlement, environmental law, and animal welfare law.  Work is also being done on comparative law and the pedagogy of legal teaching.
