Welcome to the Liverpool Law School

Liverpool Law School is one of the oldest law departments in the UK. We are committed to contributing, through the excellence of our research and policy work, to critical exploration of the role of law in promoting, or inhibiting, social justice. We strive for social relevance and to influence public debate and policy at the local, national, European and international levels.
