Research Assessment Exercise 2014

In the latest assessment of research across all UK universities (December 2014), 100% of the research activity being carried out in Dundee Law School was rated as being of a quality which is "recognised internationally", in terms of its originality, significance and rigour, with more than half meeting the more exacting criteria of being “world leading” or “internationally excellent”. The results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) show that we are the only Law Unit in the UK to have achieved this high standard in both the current and the previous research exercise (in 2008).

The majority of our impact - the effect our research has on policy and practice - has been ranked in the top two categories with more than a quarter rated as “outstanding” - a figure which is three times greater than the average in the discipline of Law across the UK. This underlines the importance the Law School attaches to legal research which makes a real difference and transforms lives, both locally and internationally.

Would you like to plead ‘not guilty’? Or ‘actually innocent’?

Pamela Ferguson 110x110

Professor Pamela Ferguson gave a paper at the Gerald Gordon Criminal Law Conference, which took place at the University of Glasgow on 9 June. An abstract of her paper appears, below.
