Our research enables us to evaluate the challenges and opportunities offered by the law to catalyse the sustainability transition. We focus on questions that can generate meaningful and lasting impact on society. Our research culture combines intellectual freedom, scientific rigour, and a genuinely multidisciplinary and collaborative approach to create the best possible environment for genuinely novel work that stands the test of time. We carry out our work with colleagues from within the University of Oxford and beyond, and deliberately bring together academics and practitioners.
