Internationally recognised research
At Southampton Law School we are proud of our worldwide reputation for research excellence in many fields. Research is of key importance within the School and is embedded in everything that we do, including our teaching.
Through our research centres and as individual scholars we work with a wide variety of groups including the legal profession, policy makers in government and the EU and other research bodies and organisations around the world. This reflects our strengths in many fields of legal and socio-legal research and these close links give our students the opportunity to study with internationally-respected scholars.
All of our full-time staff are active researchers across a wide range of subjects in public, private, domestic and international law. Many are recognised for their work at the forefront of their fields and are leading authors and experts in their respective subjects.
We engage in several nationally and internationally-funded research projects and our success in drawing in such funding is increasing year on year. We are committed to further expanding our research portfolio through recruiting leading scholars and high quality early career researchers.
At Southampton Law School we are delighted to be home to a number of prestigious research centres that are among the best in the world. These include:
- the Institute of Criminal Justice Research
- the Institute for Law and the Web
- the Centre for Law, Ethics and Globalisation
- the Centre for Health Ethics and Law
- the Institute of Maritime Law
- the Institute for Law and the Web (ILAWS)
Our wide range of academic publication, journal editorships, practitioner works and major conference activity demonstrate the strength of our research environment and impact.
