Research degrees in Law

All supervisors are qualified members of staff with their own major research projects and publications. Our large and thriving community of postgraduate research students numbers around 120 at any one time.  The School of Law is part of both the LISS and LAHP Doctoral Training Programmes, so can accept applications for both doctoral awards, as well as offering a number of other funding opportunities.
