Centre for Law Crime and Justice Our Postgrads

PhD Studies

The Centre warmly welcome expressions of interest in study by research. We encourage MPhil and PhD proposals in any area relating to Law, Crime and Justice. This covers a broad spectrum of topics (see below), inter-disciplinary approaches and possible methodologies, including desk-based work, theoretical scholarship, as well as field-based empirical research.

A range of funded scholarships and bursaries are available for post-graduate research. Academic staff in your area of interest may also be able to advise you further.

Applications or expressions of interest in PhDs should be made to the Law School’s Post-Graduate Research Leader: Dr Sylvie da Lomba, and/or, to any academic member of staff who works in the area in which you are interested.
