The Legal Professions Research Network exists to foster innovation and collaboration between scholars, regulators, policy-makers and practitioners in the production of world-class research and evidence informed policy-making in the fields of legal services and legal education.
Overview of the Legal Professions Research Network
A major emphasis of the Network is on creating sustained national and international collaborations with leading researchers and practitioners working at the cutting-edge of legal, regulatory, ethical, organisational, and technological developments in the legal professions. The network is also developing a program of visiting fellowships, workshops, and publications that advance innovative scholarship, policy-making and practice, and will inform developments in legal education and training.
The Legal Professions Research Network is engaging in research covering issues which are of significance to the legal profession, educating and training our future legal professionals.
The LPRN's work is broadly organised around three key thematic areas. These themes both reflect individual research interests across the Network and particularly inform the strategic direction and collaborative research priorities of the LPRN.
