Empirical Approaches

Cluster Overview

The School of Law has a strong, and growing, reputation for socio-legal empirical research. The Empirical Approaches cluster includes staff with a wide variety of interests, including criminal justice, family law, gender and the law, governance and regulation, human rights, and refugee law, but what connects these diverse research interests is socio-legal engagement. Staff in the cluster utilise various qualitative and quantitative research methods with a view to finding out how the law is actually working in practice.
