The College of Business and Law is committed to providing a supportive and vibrant research environment. Our academic staff are involved in a number of research areas and continue to produce and publish works that have significant impact and relevance in the fields of law and business.
Research by the School not only informs teaching, it is often a part of student learning, and postgraduate students regularly are part of enquiries and projects. It also leads to publications in various academic, professional and popular forums. Our staff regularly present papers at academic conferences in New Zealand and overseas.
Academics in the School of Law at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand are leaders in their respective fields of research. School of Law Research continues to make significant contributions both nationally and internationally to the understanding and operation of law and government at every level.

You can search SPARK for information about individual researchers, the projects they are working on, the research groups they belong to, the specialist equipment that they use, and their affiliations.
