The Research Exercise Framework 2021 (REF2021)

The results of the Research Excellence Framework 2021 (REF2021) were released on 12 May 2022. Over 60% of the School of Law’s research outputs submitted for assessment were rated as “world-leading”, something achieved by only one other submission to the Law panel. 

“These results are a significant advance on our performance in REF2014, reflecting the work put in across the School of Law to improve our research environment and the support we offer to researchers. Since 2014, we have reshaped the way in which we support legal research and are proud to have recruited early career researchers from around the world who have made Glasgow their home. We have a fantastic team of researchers across the School and I’m delighted to see their hard work recognised in this way, particularly as all this has been combined with delivering excellent teaching.”
