Socio-Legal research

This area is very much a work in progress. We are hoping that it will become an essential starting point for socio-legal researchers. At the moment, we have concentrated on compiling a comprehensive list of links for as many subject areas as possible. In the future, it is hoped that the subject areas will be expanded and that other resources will be added, for example, downloadble documents, articles and information about funding opportunities.

If you have any suggestions on how to improve the resources provided here, then we will be very pleased to hear from you. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
