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.

Our academic research is respected internationally for its rigour and significance. We take as the inspiration for our legal investigations core values such as equality and citizenship, participation and exclusion, vulnerability, and social responsibility – whilst also reflecting upon how such values are themselves constructed and critiqued.
