The Westminster Law & Theory Lab brings together diverse yet overlapping strands in the study of law in its transnational, regional or international manifestation, with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinarity and critical theoretical analysis.

The focus of Lab activities is firmly on the link between the applied and the theoretical. The Lab seeks to facilitate common scholarly activities and projects, thus acting as a bridge between the applied and the theoretical, and providing a supportive context within which radical new research can flourish. Drawing on the strengths of the Westminster Law School in the areas of international law, governance, sociology, economics, geography, human rights and legal theory, the Lab encourages collaboration both at a national and international level, through public guest lectures, open fora such as conferences, workshops and seminars, internships, guest fellowships, and online publications, which draw together established academics, researchers, practitioners, activists and international research networks.

The Lab hosts an annual postgraduate conference, the annual Westminster Dialogue Series, the Westminster Law Review and the Westminster Online Working Papers Series.
