About PhD study

This course is available for you to study either on a full-time or part-time basis and you have the flexibility to switch should you need to.

A PhD is founded on independent research. You will undertake a systematic and in-depth exploration of your chosen topic to produce a substantial body of knowledge and make an original and important contribution to the subject area.

The support provided by your supervisory team will be vital to your student experience and scholarly advancement. You and your supervisors will have regular one-to-one meetings which will provide you with opportunities to develop your research topic and discuss your progress.

Career

Studying for a PhD enables you to develop an area of specialism that will give you an edge whether you are planning to work within the field of law or to develop expertise to teach in academia.

During your PhD, you will also be learning transferable core skills that apply to jobs both in and out of academia, including written and oral communication, research and information management, public speaking, project management, leadership, critical thinking, collaboration, analysis and problem-solving, conflict resolution, negotiation. By the end of your research degree you will be able to articulately apply these skills to enhance your career path.
