Legal Theory

Cluster Overview

Here at Warwick there is a longstanding interest in theoretical approaches to law, either in themselves or as they apply to particular areas of law. Legal theory at Warwick is both diverse and attuned to the overall interest in the School in contextual and international approaches. Interests cover the range of legal theory including critical, economic, feminist, law and literature/ humanities, liberal, Marxist, postcolonial, and sociological approaches.

Legal theory is supported through research activities in the School, including through events at the Centre for Critical Legal Studies, the Centre of Ethics, Law and Public Affairs, the GLOBE Centre, the Social Theory Centre and through the IDLHR LLM programme.
