Bristol Centre for Law at Work

The University of Bristol launched the Centre for Law at Work in 2018. The Centre aims to establish the University of Bristol Law School as a centre of excellence in the study of law at work. The Centre embraces a wide range of methodological approaches and a collaborative research and teaching environment. Professors Alan Bogg and Tonia Novitz were the inaugural co-directors of the new Centre, and it is supported by a group of legal scholars based at Bristol who are exploring the different legal dimensions of work.

The Centre was formally launched at its first workshop, Criminality at Work, a major scholarly project examining the interface between criminal law and the regulation of work. More details of the workshop can be found here:
