Athena SWAN charter

The School of Law is proud to hold a Bronze Gender Equality Charter Mark (Athena SWAN award).

The Athena SWAN programme was originally founded to help the advancement of women in the STEMM subjects in academia and research.  The programme has now expanded beyond STEMM, working towards gender equality in the arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law (AHSSBL), and in professional and support roles, and includes trans staff and students.

The School of Law was among the first Law departments in the country to participate in Athena SWAN. Its Bronze Charter was first awarded in 2014 and was renewed in May 2018. It demonstrates the School’s commitment to furthering gender equality within higher education.
