Ratio is the annual magazine published by LSE Law School. It provides a unique insight into the work of our staff, students and alumni.
Each year, the Ratio editorial team seeks out a loose organising theme around which we can build the issue. Sometimes, as last year with the advent of Covid, the theme pushes itself forward. This year, with a post-diluvian sensibility, we initially plumbed for the theme of ‘regeneration’. As events unfolded in Eastern Europe, however, our sense of optimism and rebirth petered. We recalibrated, and now offer ‘reflection’ alongside our future-gazing.
This reflection is intended to project just some of the many innovative and exciting things that are currently happening across the LSE Law School. The issue opens with a scoping interview with the Dean of the newly rebranded Law School, Professor David Kershaw, and a review of the series of events put on in the School that have demonstrated our capacity to lead and encapsulate the public debate, and to focus attention on the disparate, myriad legal uncertainties thrown up by the wretched events in Ukraine.
Under the themes of ‘world-leading research’, ‘transformative teaching and learning’, ‘impact’, ‘community’ and ‘environment’, the five sections of the issue unfurl the diverse dimensions of the LSE Law School experience. They serve to evidence the diverse array of inspiring endeavours and accomplishment being pursued by our students, faculty, professional support staff and alums. The issue closes with an introduction to the LSE’s Shaping the World Campaign that invites philanthropic and volunteering support for the School’s core missions.
