The Law PhD programme is devised to give you the supervision and skills needed to complete a thesis for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Opportunities are available for study on a full-time or a part-time basis.
While there is diverse expertise within the Department of Law and we welcome applications in all areas of legal study, we particularly welcome applications in the following areas:
As a PhD student within the Department of Law, you will be expected to attend the University's research training sessions and a series of in-house training seminars run by the Department. These latter sessions take the form of research 'masterclasses', where an experienced member of the Department leads a session intended to reflect upon different aspects of conducting research in law. You are also invited to attend the Department of Law research seminars arranged for members of the academic staff.
For further information about the Law PhD programme (including the availability of supervision in an area of your interest) please contact Dr Phil Harris.
You can view the full range of research papers published by Kingston University Law academics via the Kingston University Research Repository.
The award for teaching excellence included specific praise for the inclusivity and accessibility of the University's courses.
