The Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context (CLSGC)
The Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context (CLSGC) is a home for multidisciplinary research into the global dimensions of law and society. At its core, the CLSGC aims to work towards a better theorisation of law in its changing social contexts, exploring the challenges posed for this endeavour by law’s increasingly important global dimensions. We conceive this as an open collaborative project, welcoming the insights of socio-legal and doctrinal scholars working in any area of law. We understand ‘global context’ broadly, encompassing transnational, international, regional, supra-state, and (where relevant) sub-state phenomena. We aim to combine both contemporary and historical approaches, recognising that the global dimension of law and society is, in many respects, not a new phenomenon. Apart from undertaking collaborative research, we also supervise post-graduate research, and regularly host workshops, seminars and conferences.
