Clinical Legal Education

Meet our staffResearch activities within this area are derived from, and disseminated via, the Law School's internationally acclaimed Student Law Office which is a leader in the field of clinical legal education.

Research has focussed on approaches to experiential learning and assessment, ethical dilemmas and research into experiential learning, professional obligations and clinical perspectives to miscarriages of justice. This is complemented by legal regulatory research within the Information Rights Research Group into data protection, privacy, information sharing and whistleblowing.

The Group organises an annual international conference and publishes a peer-reviewed biannual journal. The International Journal of Clinical Legal Education provides inter-disciplinary analysis and critical reflection of experiential legal education research.

The Student Law Office was awarded a Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education in November 2013. The prize is the highest form of national recognition open to a UK academic institution and is awarded in recognition of work judged to be of outstanding excellence and with positive impact.
