Research Activities Fund

The Society of Legal Scholars supports legal research and scholarship through the Research Activities Fund (administered by the Research Grants Committee). Each year the Society sets aside a fund (currently £20,000) available for research grants in the coming year.

Applications are invited each year from members of the Society. Applications will be invited for the next round as from 1 January and must be received by the Administrative Secretary, by email admin@legalscholars.ac.uk, no later than 5.00pm on the first Monday of March.
