Lancaster University Law School is a vibrant school that combines the disciplines of Law and Criminology.

Staff in the School continue to benefit from Lancaster’s strong commitment at institutional and School level to the provision of an environment that encourages and supports research and scholarship. The Law School has retained a friendly, co-operative ethos that promotes collaborative working and the sharing of research and teaching experiences. Both Research and Scholarship are supported through a personal research allowance, a separate fund for participation in conferences, a structured and supported staff development programme, the allocation of a personal mentor and ongoing sabbatical leave (for both research and scholarship staff).
