Socio Legal Reserach


Learn more about the work the Group undertakes

The Socio-Legal Research Group seeks to understand law as a social phenomenon.

To achieve this, members from the Group conduct research that examines, explores and analyses the operation of law within a socio-theoretical framework, rather than a purely doctrinal one.

Although the work the Socio-Legal Research Group carries out is varied, it generally relates to the following key research themes:

  • Family law, including domestic violence and comparative family law
  • Child protection, especially the threshold for state intervention in family life
  • Legal history, including the Poor Law and war crimes
  • Feminist discourse, gender and the law, especially gendered experience of subsistence harms
  • The law relating to vulnerable adults
