Durham Law School

Research Briefings

Durham Law School is committed to legal and interdisciplinary scholarship that aims to drive societal change both in the UK and around the world.

The Durham Law School Research Briefings explain some of our research projects to non-specialist audiences and disseminate it to policy-makers, members of the legal profession, civil society groups, academics, and other audiences. In addition, please see our Durham Law Policy Engagement (DLPE) site for key legal and policy reforms that have been influenced by our recent research.

This site highlights our four most recent research briefings, followed by a table of all briefings that can be sorted by the name of the first author, the title of the briefing, the publication date, and the affiliated research group. For any further questions please contact us at law.researchactivity@durham.ac.uk.
