Course summary

We are proud of the School of Law's vibrant research culture and welcome high-quality applicants from all over the world.

Cutting-Edge Research

In a dynamic research environment, our academics are established legal experts who provide strong support and supervision for PhD researchers working in their respective fields. 100% of our academic research is judged to be world leading, internationally excellent, or internationally recognised (REF 2014).

We take a pluralistic approach to legal research, which spans a range of methodologies and research traditions. Across all these areas, our research challenges preconceptions and established ideas about the law, subjects the content and process of legal decision-making to stringent analysis, and provides value to external users and impacts upon the wider world.
