LAW: Institute for Law, Justice and Society Overview
The activities of the Institute for Law, Justice and Society fall within four broadly-defined clusters (criminal law and justice; international law; law, sexuality and gender; and interdisciplinary legal studies) within which we are engaged in empirical, doctrinal and theoretically-informed research on some of the most challenging questions of our age. These include, for example, modern slavery, human trafficking, domestic violence, non-traditional marriages, climate change, the migration crisis, pollution offences, sustainable development, social justice, ethical business regulation, law and political economy, corporate social responsibility, international human rights, children’s rights, police powers, mental disorder and criminal responsibility, sentencing and penal policy, organised crime, and law, rights and technology.
