Activity: AwardsPrize (including medals and awards)

1/02/201831/12/2018

The aim of this research is to access Polish archival holdings and carry our research on individual Polish judge who were instrumental in realising war crimes trials in Poland. An enquiry of this kind not only demonstrates the importance of looking at the biographies of lesser known lawyers, but it also challenges the way we think about the law by asking us to consider the individual behind a legal principle. The project will make an original contribution to socio-legal studies through its focus on lawyers by way of its methodology, which will engage with photographs and other (where applicable) documentary sources.
