Course summary

Course Overview

We welcome applications for PhD research degrees in all aspects of law and legal studies at the Law School. For students who wish to study for a shorter period, we also offer a two-year MPhil research degree.

As a research student you will be supervised by one or more of our academic staff, meeting with them to discuss your research (typically, supervision via video-conferencing is available for students who are not based in Lancaster, or indeed not based in the UK). Your supervisors are also able to give you guidance on preparing for conferences and writing for publication, as well as advice on academic and other careers. You will also undertake Faculty and School-based research training.

You will be welcomed into a vibrant Law School, and you will be invited to attend any guest lectures and seminars that the department host. We also host student-led seminars, arranged by the research students themselves for the discussion of work in progress.
