Consultations, inquiries and surveys

Can you help a team at the Oxford Centre for Socio-legal studies support people attending hearings online?

A team at the Oxford Centre for Socio-Legal studies, led by Linda Mulcahy, has been funded by the ESRC to help develop some short introductory films for tribunal users who are due to appear in court online. The team are working in partnership with HMCTS on this project. They have developed a short pilot film aimed at helping members of the public and are in the process of testing it out with as many people as possible in the hope of better meeting the information needs of lay users. Do you have 15 mins to watch the film and give the team some feedback?

The film and survey are accessible via this link

If you know of anyone else who may be interested in taking part, then please feel free to circulate the survey to them as well.

For more information or to discuss this project with me or another member of our project team, then please don’t hesitate to get in contact with This email address is being protected from spambots.

Other announcements

Queer Judgments Project: call for expressions of interest

The Queer Judgments Project is an initiative that evolved from discussions on how legal judgments related to sexual orientation, gender identity and expression and sex characteristics (SOGIESC) could have been written in more appropriate terms in light of the legal framework at the time. This initiative is inspired by past similar projects, such as the Feminist Judgments projects (in the UK, Ireland, Australia and USA), the Children’s Rights judgments project, the upcoming Earth Law judgments project and Alex Sharpe’s article 'Queering Judgment’. Please see announcement for full details. Closing date for expressions of interest: 19 October 2021
