Research synergies highlighted at Law School event
Wednesday 22 June 2016
Members of the Kingston Law School came together to share ideas at a recent Law School Research Away Day at Warren House, Kingston Hill. Synergies across research interests within the areas of financial crime and in jurisprudence were highlighted.
Several attendees also found commonality in taking a comparative approach in their work. Research Groups within the School such as GELP (Group for Employment Law and Policy) and the newly formed Integrity Research Group act as a platform for research collaboration and activity. Discussion also centred around the synergies that may be generated in new research groupings.
Peer review and research mentoring are further components of the drive led by Prof Michael Wynn, active researcher in the area of employment law and School Research Director, towards ensuring an enabling environment for research. A recent School initiative, the Young Researchers Group, aims to focus on the needs and aspirations of Early Career Researchers and young researchers.
The gathering was also an opportunity to discuss the broader context as the space within which School research exists and to look at how responses might be optimised for the benefit of School of Law research.
