The Leverhulme Trust has kindly awarded me a research fellowship for the next two years. The Trust says this about its approach to research:
The approach of the Leverhulme Trust can be characterised simply as: Tell us (in plain language) what research you want to do, and why it is compelling, and if that sounds persuasive we will try to fund the work.
I will be studying "The New Legal Services Market". The research will embody a global perspective given the moves made by Australia and those being imposed by the Troika on Ireland, Greece and Portugal. I should add parenthetically that being global means I will be travelling outside London, even to New York.
