An opportunity to share ideas and collaborate An opportunity to share ideas and collaborate

The Law School research seminar series provides an opportunity for members of staff from the Law School and elsewhere in the University to share ideas at different stages of development. Both staff and PhD students have presented papers to the series ranging from media and internet law to restitution and criminal law. It is an important part of our research environment. We also have external speakers from other Universities. Members of faculty also present in the Centre for Competition Policy research seminar series.

For further information please contact the Director of Research for the School: Professor Michael Harker
