The LawLab constitutes an experimental site of activity hosted by Cardiff School of Law & Politics. Home to the Law, Experience and Practice (LEAP) network (funded by the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences) which drives many of the events and initiatives we host, central to our work is the exploration of methods, technologies and approaches that help us to analyse the relationship between law, regulation and the living social environment.  Identification of expertises that are germane to, and intersect with questions about law and regulation prove critical for such an understanding.  The LawLab centralises an ethic of collaboration, with the explicit aim of making a positive difference in the broader community by producing robust policy-orientated work attained through partnership with end-users, intermediaries, and across disciplines.
