Law, Society and Popular Culture

Founded in 1996, the Centre for Law, Society and Popular Culture draws together many of the threads of work that goes on in the Westminster Law School and beyond. It has an established reputation, both professionally and academically, and covers areas such as music, sport, film and the media amongst others. Activities of the Centre include organising the Theory Meets Practice Seminar Series and coordinating the Entertainment and Sports Law Journal. Recently the Centre curated the Classified Exhibition in conjunction with the British Board of Film Classification and a series of seminars on football agents and match fixing in football. Members of the Centre have received research funding from bodies such as The Socio Legal Studies Association, Institute for Alcohol Studies, the Musicians' Union, ESRC and TSB.
