Research Themes


Professor Linda Mulcahy joined the Law Department at the London School of Economics in 2010, specialising in socio-legal approaches to the study of law and legal phenomena. She has degrees in law, sociology and art history with the result that her work has a strong interdisciplinary flavour. 

Linda’s 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 Linda has been working on the relationship between due process and the design of law courts. She is also interested in visual representations of justice. 

Research biography

Linda’s research interests lie in the field of dispute resolution. Her published work focuses on the evolution and dynamics of disputes, mediated settlement and the trial. Most recently she has written a book on the ways in which the design of law courts conditions the enjoyment of due process rights.
