We can boast a number of recognised international and national experts from a wide variety of legal scholarship; ranging from domestic private and public law, to international and European law, as well as contextual, socio-legal and theoretical legal studies. Recent publications by members of the Law School bear witness to the variety and the depth of this expertise.
