The Centre for Applied Legal Research
The Centre for Applied Legal Research (CALR) was established by the University in October 2002. It promotes and co-ordinates the research activity within the School of Law.
The CALR is fortunate to be home to a large number of leading scholars who specialise in a wide range of subject areas and legal disciplines. This work informs national and international scholarly debates and also impacts on government, business and the wider community. The CALR and its research is organised into five subject-based research units:
- Family, Gender and Equality
- Environmental Law
- Commercial Law
- Criminal Justice
- International Law and Human Rights.
The CALR also hosts the "Business and Society" Partnership.
The supervision and support of doctoral students researching topics and issues in law is an important part of the CALR’s work. Irrespective of their mode of study (full or part-time), doctoral students are included as members of the Centre and participate in our activities. Read more about Doctoral research.
