- The Bentham Project. Members of the project are editing the voluminous works of Jeremy Bentham. Bentham’s work includes philosophy and political theory and those involved in the project include historians, legal theorists, philosophers and political scientists.
- Centre for Law and the Environment. The Centre provides a focal point for the Faculty’s rapidly expanding interests in the field of the environment and law. Its cross disciplinary research activity has included Carbon Capture and Storage, Satellites, Transponders, and CO2 Sequestration.
- Centre for Law and Governance in Europe. The interdisciplinary focus of the Centre’s work is in the field of governance theory and practice, European social policy, regional development policy, agriculture and development policy.
- Centre for Empirical Legal Studies. The emphasis in the work of the Centre is on empirical research investigating the operation and effects of law within the context of the social, economic and political environment. The work of the centre is concerned with the role and function of law, the enforcement of law, compliance with law, resistance to law, the use and experience of law, the impact of law and the character of law itself.
- Centre for Law, Economics and Society. The Centre was founded with the objective of providing a stimulating environment to develop and promote interdisciplinary research in the area of law & economics - considering the field from a wide perspective beyond the 'classical' approach. It carries out a variety of activities which contribute to public discussion in the area.
- The Jevons Institute for Competition Law and Economics aims through external events, research projects, teaching and publications to stimulate research and debate concerning the application of competition law and industry regulation to the marketplace; and promote interaction among academic scholars in law and economics, policymakers and enforcement officials, the judiciary, practitioners and business leaders.
- The WTO Scholars' Forum based at UCL and University of Cambridge is an interdisciplinary group of World Trade Organization practitioners, academics and policy makers based in the fields of law, economics, international relations and international economic law.
- UCL Energy Institute. Javier DE CENDRA is member of the advisory group of the UCL Energy Institute, and director of Research Ethics therein. The UCL Energy Institute brings together different perspectives, understandings and procedures in energy research, transcending the boundaries between academic disciplines. It enables UCL to draw on all its disciplines to address the energy challenge. It has relevance to and impacts on each of the UCL Grand Challenges: Global Health, Sustainable Cities, Intercultural Interaction and Human Wellbeing. The Institute has a core research, teaching and enterprise activity and also acts as an umbrella for energy research across the college. It has its own multidisciplinary team of researchers and students and also coordinates teams from across the University, providing critical mass and capacity for ambitious projects. Core researchers at the UCL Energy Institute carry out world-leading research in the fields of buildings, energy systems, people and energy, policy and law, smart energy and transport. These research themes are not mutually exclusive, and many researchers work across two or more themes, ensuring a truly interdisciplinary approach to energy research. Affiliate researchers across UCL come from more than 20 departments including architecture, planning, laws, psychology, statistics as well as more traditional energy subject areas such as mechanical and chemical engineering and the physical sciences.
- UCL Institute for Human Genetics and Health. Hazel GENN is a member of senior management team of this Institute, which is an innovative interdisciplinary collaboration between UCL laboratory scientists, clinicians, lawyer and social scientists. The research of the Institute will focus on the key challenges needing to be tackled over the next decade in human genetics as related to health - understanding the role that genetic variation plays in the causes of common disease, and understanding social and legal responses to the benefits and risks of advances in genetic knowledge - both real and assumed. Recognising that in the future researchers will need greater interdisciplinary skills, the Institute has established a unique training programme to equip doctoral students with understanding and skills that cross the traditional natural science/social science boundary.
- UCL's Institute for Human Rights is a multidisciplinary centre promoting cutting edge research, teaching and public engagement. With its wide range of activities the Institute leads academic impact and engagement on global human rights issues. The Institute's focus is on human rights standard-setting, interpretation and application, in both the international and domestic context.
