Research seminars

If you would like to gain a more in-depth knowledge of an aspect of business or law practice through our ongoing research at the Business School and Law School, then one of our research seminars might help you. These events are taken by a speaker from one of the Schools and aim to share our knowledge, discoveries, research best practice and new research methods.

Seminars on human resources management (HRM) are run by our Centre for Research in Employment, Skills and Society (CRESS) as part of its seminar series. You can find details of our upcoming HRM seminars on  the CRESS Seminar listings webpage
