The School of Law, Accounting and Finance has a vibrant research community. Law lecturers engage in a variety of research activities which result in the presentation of papers at conferences, the publication of journal articles and textbooks and the acquisition of research grants. Staff members work in a range of research centres across the University, including: the Law, Accounting and Finance Research Group; the Business Accountability and Responsibility Centre and the Centre for Gender Studies in Wales, which regularly host conferences and seminars.
By providing a common and organised forum for the research community, we aim to:
Areas of expertise include: criminal law, family law, intellectual property law, media law, the law relating to pensions and law teaching methods e.g. simulations and e-learning. The research conducted in these areas feeds directly into the teaching on the LLB, LLM and Foundation Degree programmes, ensuring that students are exposed to relevant scholarship and enjoy a high quality learning experience.
Those who wish to study a specific aspect of the law in depth can pursue MPhil or PhD studies at the University. We particularly welcome applications in the fields of criminal law, family law, intellectual property law, media law, pension law and law teaching methods.
