Please get in touch with Professor Simon Gardiner outlining your research proposal for an initial informal discussion as to whether we have the right expertise to take on your project and support you on your research journey.

Throughout your research you will be supported by a supervisory team of at least two experienced academics as well as a university wide Graduate Schools (which offers a significant amount of training for all stages of your work).

This is an exciting time for Leeds Law School as we are developing a research profile in international human rights and development and Transnational Justice. Please see below current projects and research interests of three colleagues:

Dr Agata Fijalkowski's work concerns Transnational Justice and genocide and war crimes. She has a particular focus on images around connected legal trials. It contends that these photographs 'speak legally'. The work's distinct novelty lies in unravelling the cultural, historical, and political implications of visualising law from the images themselves

Dr Agata Fijalkowski is actively seeking research students, see information below: https://www.leedsbeckett.ac.uk/staff/dr-agata-fijalkowski/
