A new research group, based at the University of Newcastle, has been established: the Law, Innovation, and Society (LIS) group aims to address challenges broadly relating to the role of law in regulating innovation, and innovation within law and legal institutions.
The LIS group takes an interdisciplinary approach to explore the interrelationship between the law, innovation, and society. Led by Prof Muireann Quigley and Dr Ilke Turkmendag, the group members are drawn from a variety of legal sub-disciplines. Several also have backgrounds in other disciplines, as well as outside academia.
