Course Summary

The PhD programme is recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the UK's leading research council addressing economic and social concerns. The PhD is tailored to students' needs and can include generic modules from our postgraduate Master's programmes such as Research Frameworks and Qualitative and Quantitative Research Methods.

Concentrating on a number of clearly defined research areas in which our expertise is internationally recognised, we aim to: specialise in distinctive and innovative research; establish and foster critical and multidisciplinary scholarships, by building links with other disciplines and by introducing the scholarly values and methods of the humanities and social sciences into the discipline of law; promote a culture of joint research, publications and other forms of collaboration among our staff; and pursue a programme of national and international links.
