Routledge Law continues this tradition by offering a range of successful and distinctive research titles making available cutting edge and influential research by both established authors and up-and-coming academics.

Glasshouse Books

GlassHouse is the leading publisher of texts in the areas of socio-legal studies and critical legal theory, specialising in books that offer a fresh perspective on law and contemporary legal issues. Our aim is to publish books that re-think conventional approaches to law, and that address new objects or subjects of legal enquiry. Books that are innovative as well as scholarly, and that inspire and provoke as well as inform. Books with a critical edge. And, particularly, books that draw upon the insights and frameworks of other disciplines: sociology, politics or philosophy; but also other social science and humanities disciplines, such as cultural studies, geography, economics, social policy, history and literature.

Routledge Research in Law Books

Routledge is one of the few commercial publishers who continue to publish and invest in specialised academic research. At a time when many publishers have chosen to focus almost exclusively on student textbooks, Routledge is committed to publishing important research produced by the academic community. Our research titles form part of the successful Routledge Research programme which is recognised by academics and libraries the world over, ensuring the books achieve a worldwide readership.
