About Us

Law and Global Justice at Durham (LGJD), a research cluster based in Durham Law School, provides a forum for the development and dissemination of legal research with an international, transnational, or global dimension.

It also provides a home for inter-disciplinary or multi-disciplinary research that relates to wider debates over global justice. The cluster, primarily composed of academics and postgraduate researchers within Durham Law School, is increasingly expanding to include participants from across the University whose research and scholarship has a global dimension and touches on the role of law on that global plane.
