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.
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. Dispatches from the Frontline of Law and Popular Culture is the Centre’s blog, and contributions are always welcome.
