Professor Linda Mulcahy joined the Law Department at the London School of Economics in 2010. Having gained qualifications in law, sociology and the history of art and architecture, Linda’s work has a strong interdisciplinary flavour.
Her research focuses on disputes and their resolution and she has studied the socio-legal dynamics of disputes in a number of contexts including the car distribution industry, NHS, divorce, public sector complaints systems and judicial review. Her work often has an empirical focus and she has received a number of grants from the ESRC, AHRC, Department of Health, Nuffield Foundation and Lotteries Fund in support of her work.
In recent years she has been working on the relationship between due process and the design of law courts. She is also interested in visual representations of justice. In addition to her work in the Law Department Linda is the first Director of the LSE’s new PhD Academy.
