Course summary

About our programmes

We welcome applications for postgraduate research into many areas of law at PhD level. Our particular range of specialisms includes areas as diverse as contract, international, maritime, comparative and criminal justice, human rights, European Union law, and public law among many others.

In each programme, students write a detailed research thesis on a topic they have chosen under the supervision of a member of staff specialising in that area of law. A thesis is presented of 100,000 words for a PhD. Candidates are also required to attend a viva voce (oral) examination.

Our postgraduate students are a fully integrated part of Law and our research students make an important contribution to our vibrant research culture. You are given expert supervision from at least two academic members of staff, research training and financial assistance to fund research trips and attend conferences. We also stage dedicated workshops, seminars and conferences for our PhD students.
