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 great question that has never been answered and which I have not get been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is “What does a women want?”
    Sigmund Freud (1856–1939)

    One of the most important findings to come out of our research is that being where you want to be is good for you. We found a very strong correlation between preferring the role you are in and well-being. The homemaker who is at home because she likes that “job,” because it meets her own desires and needs, tends to feel good about her life. The woman at work who wants to be there also rates high in well-being.
    Grace Baruch (20th century)

    The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is “What does a woman want?” [Was will das Weib?]
    Sigmund Freud (1856–1939)
