Christmas is just around the corner. With all the hustle and bustle of academic life, we all need a little time off to refresh, recover and reflect.

As of this week (Monday 19 Dec. 2022), we’ll be taking a winter break.

We hope that you can look back on another positive year with us. In 2022, we had 70 posts and thousands of visitors from 112 countries around the world.

The ELR Blog will be back in January 2023 with more exciting research news from the Essex Law School.

We wish you and your family all the warmth this holiday season has to offer.

We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a New Year filled with peace and joy!
