Socio-Legal Studies

The Socio-Legal Studies research cluster at Essex brings together scholars from within the School of Law and beyond.

We have a range of interdisciplinary, empirical and theoretical perspectives on socio-legal research represented, all broadly taking a 'law in the real world' approach. Research within the cluster spans topics including environmental/planning, administrative justice, legal history, health law, criminal justice, mediation theory and practice, disability rights, procedural justice and beyond. Socio-legal studies represents a cross-cutting theme and our meetings provide an opportunity for scholars to discuss a broad range of areas from a socio-legal perspective.
