The Centre for the Study of Law in Society (CLIS) is the focal point for socio-legal research at the University of Sheffield. The Centre’s main aim is to operate as an inclusive group, encouraging and supporting the research of a diverse range of scholars. As a multi-disciplinary research network, CLIS undertakes theoretical and applied work, contributing at the highest levels to socio-legal knowledge and policy development.
We welcome visiting scholar applications.
The Centre adopts a wide variety of quantitative and qualitative research methods to inform projects funded by the major research funding bodies, including the ESRC, the EU and the Office of the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman. Researchers in the Centre adopt an inter and intra-disciplinary approach to gather knowledge and expertise from wide range of academic sources. This multi-disciplinary Centre conducts high quality research about key socio-legal issues. The Centre has an impact at both the local, national and international level.
