OVERVIEW

The legal academics within the Law School build on Keele University’s long-standing reputation for excellence in socio-legal scholarship and contextually-aware doctrinal legal work.

Keele is committed to supporting research of the highest quality, which has the potential to generate impact in legal and policy fields. Established areas of strength include Gender Sexuality & Law and Professional Ethics (PEAK – see Ethics entry for details) and newer innovative groups address Globalisation & International Law and Legal Education & Professional Practice.

In addition to these clusters, research covers a number of cross-group thematic areas including healthcare law and bioethics, governance and regulation, and globalisation and international development.

Keele provides a supportive environment which encourages staff and students to produce excellent work across law and socio-legal studies. Staff publish widely, writing both monographs and articles for leading international peer-reviewed journals. Research students are encouraged to participate in national postgraduate conferences, and the internal seminars and research events which take place on a regular basis.
