Law is a new subject being led by Dimitrios Giannoulopoulos, who joins Goldsmiths as the College’s Inaugural Professor in Law.
For generations, researchers, practitioners and teaching staff at Goldsmiths have actively campaigned to make real, positive changes to society. That’s the background for us developing a law programme that we hope to launch for 2019 entry.
Studying this subject can lead to tackling society’s inequalities, injustices and abuses of power. You could also confront contemporary dilemmas and questions – for example, about the relationship between humans and technology, or what rights children may or may not have.
Our academics have existing research and teaching expertise in areas like media law, human rights, artificial intelligence, intellectual property, social media, criminology, entrepreneurship and environmental sustainability.
In tune with Goldsmiths’ rich heritage of social awareness and social engagement, championing human rights and social justice, Law will be an intellectual space for radical, critical and creative thinking.
From criminal justice, to equality, housing, privacy, war crimes, migrant rights and business regulation, academics at Goldsmiths have campaigned to change the way the world operates. Law at Goldsmiths will pick up on this history and enable us to make even greater change in future years.
Further details of the course are due to be published shortly.
