Course content

Dundee Law School has a flourishing and supportive research environment in which staff, students and researchers are encouraged to workshop their ideas. All staff in the Law School are expected to be research active and the range of research activity is wide.

Current interests and activities cover a wide variety of research traditions that include black letter, comparative, philosophical, socio-legal, interdisciplinary and historical approaches to the study of law across a range of subject areas.
Staff bring wide experience from a range of jurisdictions. The research strengths of the School were recognised in the results of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.

Dundee was one of only two law schools in the United Kingdom to achieve a 100% international standard classification, with half of our research being graded internationally excellent or world leading.
