Welcome to the Global Research Network!
THIS FORM IS FOR NEW MEMBERS WHO HAVE ALREADY PROVIDED THEIR SHORT BIOGRAPHY TO THE GRN COORDINATOR AND HAVE BEEN ASKED TO COMPLETE THIS. If you have not yet had your membership approved, please email GlobalResearchNetworkComms@gmail.com with a 100 word biography and photograph for your profile before completing this form.

The aim of the GRN is to be a focal point for early career faculty, practitioners and doctoral students interested in new thinking about global issues. Members come from a diverse range of backgrounds and higher education institutions. Our common goal is that of collaboration, which is needed more than ever as the greatest problems of the day transcend narrow fields of legal practice and the traditional divides of public/private and domestic/international law.

The GRN provides a new kind of collaborative space, facilitating long-term friendships, creative thinking and genuine career support. Members are invited to connect across national and institutional borders, and to share their experiences in life, study and practice. The Network is for exceptional scholars but it is not elitist. It is inspiring but not intimidating. It will provide you with an abundance of opportunities and perspectives that we hope will enrich you and your work:

Think Tank

Our members can collaborate on topics of their choosing at the GRN Think Tank. Reports will be produced, focusing on insights, strategies and solutions to specific regulatory issues. Currently there are three programmes: Animal Law, International Economic Law, and Environmental Law. We will be looking to partner with NGOs and government research bodies over time.


Free webinars run throughout the year by senior academics. Upcoming webinars are:

* Planning an Awesome Academic Career: 11am GMT, 12th August 2019
* Creating a Winning Publication Strategy: 11am GMT, 19th August 2019
* Giving Conference Papers with Impact: 11am GMT, 2nd September 2019

Online PhD/DPhil Writing Group

For PhD/DPhil candidates at any stage of their candidature who want to join a regular writing group. Each group will meet online at a monthly facilitated meeting to give one another constructive feedback on pre-circulated work. Spaces are limited to five per group.

Events and Workshops

Each year we will sponsor an exclusive event in London, and be partnering with faculties and members abroad to host additional events. Our next London event is on 1st October 2019 - you will receive an invitation in the summer.

Our webpage will be launched on Friday 21st June. All member bios and photos have been edited to fit the webpage. Please have a look once the page is up, and you can make changes at any time by emailing me.
