We welcome proposals for original research to inform the understanding of law and policy in doctrinal, applied, comparative or socio-legal contexts. The law group has diverse interests with specific, discipline-leading, strengths in intellectual property, cyberlaw, discrimination, human rights, family, legal theory, legal history, cultural heritage and environmental law. Our staff profiles and School research pages will provide further insight into how we could help match your ambition.
You work on an advanced research project with a small supervisory team of academic experts under the direction of a Director of Studies. You are normally registered as an ‘MPhil/PhD’ candidate and will apply to transfer to ‘PhD’ status 12–21 months after registration, based on your progress to date. You are expected to fully engage with your personal skills development and to present your research in a range of scholarly contexts.
