Lund University recently decided to allocate €4 million to promote international impact. The Faculty of Social Sciences receives €590 000, part of which goes to the Sociology of Law Department.

The department receives €44 600 (SEK 520,000) for two internationalising initiatives. A grant of €12 000 goes to organising an international workshop at the end of November on de-colonialism. A further 32 600 will finance the employment of Hilary Sommerlad as a visiting professor in the autumn of 2024. Hilary Sommerlad is a Professor of Law and Social Justice at the University of Leeds, with a particular focus on the ability of lawyers to promote access to justice internationally.

The investment is part of the Faculty of Social Sciences' aim to increase the international impact of research, collaborations and exchanges. The Department of Sociology of Law hopes to strengthen its international profile and create new opportunities for research and cooperation on a global scale.
