At the School of Law, based at the Portsmouth Business School, we are committed to a research strategy that underpins our teaching and builds on the research interests of our law staff. This in turn ensures that we can give high quality support to our undergraduate and postgraduate students when they engage in their legal research. Our researchers sit on the editorial boards of several journals and have published in well regarded journals such as European Journal of International Law, International and Comparative Law Quarterly, Journal of World Energy and Business Law. They regularly present papers at major conferences including the Society of Legal Scholars and the Association of Law Teachers.
