Our family law-related research specialism include public child law such as care proceedings and adoption. Our staff also has an interest in the impact of the law on women who experience domestic abuse or have been detained under the Mental Health Act, especially in the context of human rights.
Our research is thematically arranged exploring the solutions to contemporary environmental problems and situated with the frame of the Sustainable Development Goals. Pressures upon climate, biodiversity and the world’s oceans are key themes that characterise global and local legal and policy responses which are central to our scholarship. Determining rights, obligations and understanding impacts on human and non-human entities are the primary drivers to inform this work. In tandem with the natural environment dimension, research also includes the cultural environment, with the ability to study the laws relating to marine cultural heritage and the realities of enforcement efforts.
Our research specialism in intellectual property law includes the effects of copyright law in practice. This ranges from working towards innovative solutions on how copyright can work more effectively in the digital commercial context to supporting cultural heritage institutions in making their collections available online to the general public. It engages with topical concerns about Internet structures, conflicts between online media platforms and the creative industries over the management of works available online, the various impacts of A.I. and the eventual role of end-users as both consumers and creators of online content.
