About us

The Centre for Law, Race, Gender and Sexuality adopts a critical, interdisciplinary and intersectional approach to legal scholarship which is theoretical as well as practical and grounded.

The Centre is committed to creating connections with and between researchers whose work is concerned with the interface between law and the body, and particularly in exploring the complex relationship between law, race, gender and sexuality.

We are based in the University of Westminster Law School and are made up of a community of PhD researchers and interested academics.

We are committed to debating, disseminating scholarship and networking with non-academics, activists, NGOs and policy-makers. Please connect with us via email or via social media if you wish to get in touch with us.


The Centre for Law, Gender, Race and Sexuality has created conversations around many topics including trafficking, fatherhood and homophobia.
