We are proud to launch a new Law, Business and Technology Interdisciplinary Hub (LBTIDH), which aims to be the centre of excellence for interdisciplinary research on legal regulation of business (especially of technology within the business marketplace); and on how this regulation shapes and is shaped by other disciplines other than law. It brings together legal scholars and those from other disciplines, to work together on articles and books, and to engage in impact and knowledge transfer work, and to carry out funded research.
Our aims include building on our world-class research in business law and other disciplines to work together on articles and books, to engage in impact and KT work, and to apply for funding. It reflects the key University commitment to prioritising interdisciplinary research.
Our vision of interdisciplinarity is a flexible and constructive one. This includes ongoing support from colleagues from one discipline, such as offering relevant advice on a project being completed by colleagues in a different discipline, to much larger collaboration on projects.
"This Hub is founded on the conviction that we can only truly understand legal regulation of business and technology by working with other disciplines; and that other disciplines are enriched by understanding the legal framework and how it affects what is and is not possible and desirable"
