Our research has impact in numerous policy areas.

Members of our faculty proactively engage with practitioners, policy makers, and industry partners at an early stage of their research. The result of this approach is internationally excellent and world leading collaborative research, grounded in practical application and the needs of government departments and industry bodies.

Our researchers also keep abreast of pending appeals to the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal relating to their areas of expertise, and send their work to the relevant barristers to maximise the chance of their research having an impact.

Members of faculty also engage with the media and the public in a number of ways: they speak to and write for world renowned newspapers; write up their research in policy briefings and blog posts; and are frequently active on social media.

Impact Strategy

We have developed an Impact Enhancement Strategy aimed at supporting research activity across Schools, working towards stimulating greater impact and making a practical difference beyond academia.
