Law and Society Research Group

What We Do

At Lincoln Law School we shape academic debates and inform legal and policy developments using a range of doctrinal, empirical, and theoretical techniques. Our research is connected to enquiry in the wider social and natural science, which allows us to understand and respond to the real-world complexities within which law operates.

We have expertise in a number of areas including company and commercial law, criminal justice, environmental law, human rights, and international law. As the main research group in the school, we run a vibrant research seminar series and host internal research events.


Research Themes and Sustainable Development Goals

Our research is embedded in the following University research themes, a unique set of areas that key into our goals as a civic university undertaking internationally significant research with local relevance, and as researchers engaged in the pursuit of excellence. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals badges represent our research and collaborations in terms of their contribution to the issues the world faces today and into the future.
