Office of Research

McGill’s Faculty of Law has a strong international reputation for its highly distinctive, critical, relevant and pluralist approach to legal research. At McGill, law is seen as a social force with diverse origins and multiple forms, and as a foundational subject in the humanities and social sciences. Law should be understood in its relationship with a rich range of disciplines and perspectives including politics, philosophy, literature, sociology, economics, geography, history and cultural studies. Our unique transsystemic program, which approaches legal traditions in a dialogic and interactive fashion, provides an ideal platform through which to learn and understand the value of law, as well as the problems and the challenges facing law in an increasingly globalized world.

McGill Law's Office of Research supports research in the Faculty by providing strategic advice and direction for grant writing.We also promote research through prize nominations and other research dissemination activities.

The Office of Research is made up of the Associate Dean of Research, Prof. Allison Christians, and the Research Administrator, Andrea Clegg.
