REF 2014: results confirm Law School’s research impact
The Head of Bangor Law School welcomed the School’s REF results, which follows the ten year old Law School’s first submission to the Research Excellence Framework.
“We see our first set of results under REF as very encouraging,” said Prof Dermot Cahill. “Our very high Impact score (100% at 3*, i.e. internationally excellent) is particularly satisfying as we focus on carrying out research that addresses real issues of concern to society.
“Our research has supported the widening regional availability of law services, for the benefit not just of Wales but within the wider UK, while our work in the area of Procurement legislation has been extremely important input into the framing of public policy in this important area.
“For a relatively young Law School, these REF results mark yet another significant milestone in our continuing rapid development, and demonstrates just how well connected we are to the needs of the legal sector. When put alongside our tremendous ranking for Student Satisfaction – 7th in the UK – it’s not hard to see why Bangor University Law School is becoming a popular choice for Law students.”
