What Will You Study

We welcome applications for MPhil/PhD research degrees in both law and criminology at the Law School. 

As a research student you will be supervised by one or more of our academic staff, meeting them every couple of weeks to discuss your research (supervision via video-conferencing is available for students who are not based in Lancaster, or indeed not based in the UK).  Your supervisors will also give you guidance on preparing for conferences and writing for publication, as well as advice on academic and other careers.  You will also undertake Faculty and school-based research training.  

You will be welcomed into a vibrant Law School, and be invited to attend the many guest lectures and seminars that we hold.  We also host regular student-led seminars, arranged by the research students themselves for the discussion of work in progress.

Successful applications will contain a viable research proposal, and be focused on our areas of research expertise. Please check our staff profiles for precise areas of expertise: http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/fass/law/profiles/
