Law

PhD study is substantially different from other types of postgraduate work as each candidate devises their own independent research project. At the University of Bristol Law School, comprehensive research training is provided by expert academics, who also offer guidance and supervision of your research project. If you are undertaking socio-legal research, initial research training will take the form of the MSc Socio-Legal Studies programme, which is recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council. As a PhD Law student you will become part of the school's primary unit system, which provides support for research students, and you will be invited to participate in the Law School's staff seminar programme. There may also be opportunities to undertake some part-time teaching within the school. Travel and conference funding is available for research students.

Entry requirements

An upper second-class honours degree in law (or equivalent) or a Master's qualification.

See international equivalent qualifications on the International Office website.

Sponsorship information

A number of postgraduate law scholarships available for research students each year; opportunities for teaching are also available (as a separate application procedure).
