Welcome to the Legal Research Society’s space on the web. The Legal Research Society organises symposia where students and staff present their work to colleagues and get valuable feedback in an open and friendly environment. We also organise roundtable discussions on topical matters where a lively debate and a healthy exchange are always the order of the day. In addition, we've hosted learned guests who have come to the University of Aberdeen to discuss their work with research students and staff at our Law School. Finally we organize occasional film nights where we watch movies and discuss their legal and political implications.

We are mainly focussed on postgraduate research students in law but we are open to anyone who is interested.

This site is used to create discussions of legal interest and to keep you updated on the Society’s activities. There are also a number of links to legal blogs and other resources that we hope you might find useful.

Committee members for the year 2009-10 are: Khaled Ramadan Bashir, Ahmad Torabi, Philip Bremner, Oyinkansola Chukuka Tasie . Ahmed Hassanein is our blog administrator.

Committee members for the year 2008-09 are: Khaled Bashir, Yongqiang Han, Paula Herm, Malik Hafeez and Yin Bo. Ahmed Hassanein is our blog administrator. You can find our contact details here.
