Norwich Law School - Research

Research

The 2008 Research Assessment Exercise rated 80% of the research as being at international level (2* and above), of which 40% was rated as being of either world-leading (4*) or internationally excellent quality (3*). The School has research centres or groupings in the areas of Competition Law, Media and Internet Law and International Company and Commercial Law. Additionally, members of the School have international reputations for research in Intellectual Property Law, Public Order law, Evidence, Criminal Justice and Procedure, Comparative Private Law, Contract, Tort and Restitution, and Family law. In addition to these School-based research clusters, many researchers in the School belong to formal networks which go beyond the Law School. For example, the School's competition lawyers are members of the ESRC Centre for Competition Policy and Professor Morten Hviid of the Law School took over from Catherine Waddams as Director of the CCP in September 2010. The School's Media and Internet lawyers play a central role in media@uea and Professor Alastair Mullis is a co-director, with Professor John Street.

Famous quotes containing the word research:

    The working woman may be quick to see any problems with children as her fault because she isn’t as available to them. However, the fact that she is employed is rarely central to the conflict. And overall, studies show, being employed doesn’t have negative effects on children; carefully done research consistently makes this clear.
    Grace Baruch (20th century)

    After all, the ultimate goal of all research is not objectivity, but truth.
    Helene Deutsch (1884–1982)

    I did my research and decided I just had to live it.
    Karina O’Malley, U.S. sociologist and educator. As quoted in the Chronicle of Higher Education, p. A5 (September 16, 1992)
