Course Summary

OVERVIEW

The School of Law at Queen’s has over 100 years of achievement in both education and research. We are ranked as a leading centre for legal research in the UK, and our academics are recognised experts at home and abroad.

We offer MPhil supervision across the legal field, supporting a range of approaches, from the doctrinal to the socio-legal, comparative, criminological and critical.

Our research students go to exciting careers, including as academics at law schools across the UK. Our base in Belfast gives us direct contact with the legal profession and judiciary, allowing excellent access in terms of the study of law and legal practice.

We are committed to making research students part of the life of the School of Law and the wider university. We have created a bespoke training programme for new research students. Research students also have the opportunity to get involved in editorial work for the Northern Ireland Legal Quarterly (one of the UK’s oldest law journals), or with LawPod, a podcasting venture hosted by the School of Law, or with the student-led Research Network. Funding is available to support students who want to present their work at conferences or expert seminars.

Career Prospects

Queen's postgraduates reap exceptional benefits. Unique initiatives, such as Degree Plus and Researcher Plus, bolster our commitment to employability, while innovative leadership and executive programmes alongside sterling integration with business experts helps our students gain key leadership positions both nationally and internationally.
