Centre for Law in Asia


The Centre for Law in Asia (CeLIA) was originally established in 1988 as the Centre for East Asian Law (CEAL). Based at the School of Law, Gender and Media, CeLIA brings together legal expertise on South Asian, South-East Asian, East Asian, and Central Asian laws.

The main goals of the centre are to advance research and teaching on Asian laws while building partnerships with educational organisations and legal practitioners based in Asia. We welcome applications for visiting fellowships to develop mutually beneficial research projects.

Meet the members.
