What We Do

The SLRC fosters academic research on a broad range of legal issues, evaluating the impact of legal rules on the society in which they operate and considering the influence of society on the development of the law.

Members of the SLRC are engaged in significant research projects and their findings are published in national and international journals, books and policy documents.

Members also lecture on undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at DCU and supervise postgraduate research degrees.
