Law – PhD

  • The School of Law supports a thriving PhD community, largely through its three main research centres: The Centre for American Legal Studies, The Centre for Human Rights and the Centre for Law, Science and Policy. We also contribute to the work of the University-wide Centre for Brexit Studies.

    We are currently supporting students to undertake doctoral research on a variety of topics, including capital punishment, international human rights standards and trade agreements, and the interface of law and science in the context of public health and criminal justice.

    Funded PhD Opportunities Available

    There are currently both funded and self-funded PhD opportunities in the School of Law. Find out more about these proposals, and how to apply by clicking here.
