Law School - Research - Research Projects Homepage Image 350x263 - Cogs with law terms on them Academics across the School of Law are engaged in a variety of research projects.

These include projects that involve collaborations at local, national, and international levels.

Our projects range from the promotion and safeguarding of individual rights in the United Nations and US criminal justice system, to the investigation of juror decision-making, and pedagogic approaches to benefit our students’ experience.

Where possible we invite our students to collaborate with us; providing a unique hands-on experience of generating research that can positively impact society.
