Feminist Legal Research and Action Network (FRAN)

Building on the history of the Feminist Legal Research Unit at the University of Liverpool, we are a group of legal scholars who take an intersectional approach to feminist research, teaching and scholarship.

FRAN frequently works alongside other clusters in the school, most frequently the Health Law and Policy Research Unit (HLRU) and European Children’s Rights Unit (ECRU) to produce research and co-ordinate events to promote dialogue across research areas.

If you would like to join FRAN and be included on the mailing list to stay up-to-date regarding our future events please email Dr Sarah Singh:
