Research impact

At Manchester’s School of Law we are committed to research that makes a contribution to addressing some of the major legal challenges facing societies in the twenty-first century.

With stories about social crime, government policy and international disputes in our news every day, informing the legal processes that govern these areas is a huge responsibility.

Making a difference

Our research has shaped policy-making and practice in diverse areas, from national healthcare guidelines, to influencing police procedures in countries such as Norway, Australia and Brazil.

Some of the outcomes from this research include:

Our current projects address the issues of domestic violence, discrimination, border control and the use of human organs and tissues, and continue to make an impact on today’s biggest social and legal debates.

Case study: Migrants' rights

Our researchers highlighted issues of migrants' rights through collaborating with campaign groups.
