PhD Research Degrees
All those wishing to do a research degree under the supervision of the Centre's academic staff are encouraged to apply.
For details of how to apply to the PhD Programme at The Dickson Poon School of Law, please visit the Law Research MPhil/PhD application page.
Initially please email a research proposal of between 1,000 and 2,000 words and a detailed curriculum vitae, giving a brief summary of your academic qualifications (including details of your degree classification), to the Research Support Manager. The manager will then process it to ensure that there is someone in the Centre who is available and willing to undertake the necessary supervision. If there is such a person, a formal application will then be considered by the Admissions Team.
