Welcome to our Lincoln Law Postgraduate Research Blog! Lincoln Law School is continuing to grow in size and research is a primary driver of this development. This blog was designed to share our experience as post graduate research students at Lincoln Law School.

Research interests in our postgraduate community are wide ranging, but some of the topics include: International Law, Human Rights, Corporate Social Responsibility, Refugee Protection, Environmental Law and the Responsibility to Protect. You can explore our profiles on the homepage for more information.

We will be posting exciting topics and experiences each month. You can follow our Twitter page at: @LincolnLawPGR to ensure that you never miss a post!
