About us

Students in the School of Law will find that we provide a range of research-focused, intellectually stimulating degree programmes to choose from. Our internationally-renowned academics are leaders in their fields and bring their research and practice into the lecture theatre so as to equip students with a broad range of skills.


Research undertaken by academics has led to connections with organisations such as the Metropolitan Police and the Prison Service, the NHS and a broad range of criminal justice, health and social care organisations. Our staff encourage students to start building their own networks and industry connections and will optimise the opportunities during their studies to achieve this.


Staff in the School of Law have wide-ranging research interests covering law, criminology, sociology, psychology and social policy. Current research areas include youth justice, the pharmaceutical industry, the management and resettlement of offenders, gender and sexuality, fear of crime and ballroom dancing as a leisure pursuit.

Student Diversity

 Law, Criminology and Sociology are immensely proud of the diversity of our student body.  Such diversity encompasses a range of experiences and backgrounds, ethnicity, gender, social class, region and country.  Given the fluidity and overlapping nature of identities, we take an intersectional approach to meeting student need.  Through a range or processes and structures, we seek positive engagement and partnership with our diverse student body to ensure that our learning and teaching reflects different learning styles and the broad range of need.  Our experience demonstrates that regular staff-student contact and active student engagement remains the key to a positive experience.
