About

Here at Anglia Law School, you’ll find staff who are experienced in most areas of law, including business law, corporate governance, international law, sports law, property law, environment, planning and land management, and human rights.

We’ll allocate you two supervisors suited to your area of research, with additional staff members available if necessary, and provide you with a rich and stimulating environment in which to conduct your research.

Anglia Law School has strong links to research networks in Anglia Ruskin and the wider community, including the Policing Institute for the Easter Region (PIER). We also host and take part in many other research events, including regular Faculty and departmental research seminars, which will allow you to present your research in a safe and supportive setting. These events, along with our online environment, will help you connect with other research students from a range of disciplines.
