The purpose of LawLab is to advance the field of empirical and collaborative research in pursuit of effective regulation/regulatory systems and to promote cross-disciplinary research and knowledge exchange between legal and non-legal scholars. The centre constitutes an dynamic site of activity hosted by Cardiff School of Law & Politics.
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 expertise that are germane to, and intersect with questions about law and regulation prove critical for our understandings.
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.
We are also home to the Law, Experience and Practice (LEAP) network (funded by the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences).
