Research at IALS
The Institute has both well-established and developing research strengths and interests across a wide range of fields. The Institute provides a neutral space to promote and facilitate research (and researchers), to develop the discipline, and to promote engagement with practitioners, policymakers and others. It offers a welcome home to visiting fellows, scholars and students. And it is home to between 50-80 PhD students at any one time.
In 2018, the Institute hosted a panel exploring and discussing how IALS has made a significant contribution to legal scholarship during the 70 years since its establishment.
This panel included:
- Professor Fiona Cownie, Keele University
- Professor Valsamis Mitsilegas, Queen Mary, University of London
- Professor Hilary Sommerlad, University of Leeds
- Chair: Professor Diamond Ashiagbor, IALS
