Research Seminars

Research Seminars

The School of Law Research Seminar Series* aims to foster and sustain the School’s excellent research environment. They are delivered by guest speakers from other universities in the UK or abroad, or members of staff on a wide range of topics. They provide an opportunity to share, engage with, and build upon a research piece, whether at an advanced or final stage of development. Research seminars usually last for approximately one hour, including a 30-40 minute presentation followed by a 20-30 minute discussion. Everyone, staff and students, are welcome and there is no need to register.
