About

The postgraduate research students of the Law (Postgraduate Research) programme offered by the University of Wolverhampton are supervised by academics who are leading experts in their area of law. At least one academic in each supervisory team will have a track record of successful supervisions.

Overview

Why choose this Law (Postgraduate Research) programme?

  • The Law School prides itself on the levels of support provided to postgraduate research students in the course of their PhD journey. Our academics meet regularly with their supervisees, and work closely with them at all stages of the project, from inception to completion.
  • The University of Wolverhampton provides a collegiate research environment and first-class facilities to its PhD students, including a dedicated postgraduate research room, access to the University’s Harrison Learning Centre and leading legal databases such as LexisNexis, Heinonline, and Westlaw. PhD students may also apply to access the facilities at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies in London.
  • Postgraduate research students are encouraged to present their research to University academics and fellow PhD students at colloquia within the Law School, which provide an encouraging and friendly environment for students to sharpen their research and presentation skills.
  • Our postgraduate research students are afforded the opportunity to develop their research skills through participation in training events organised by the Faculty of Social Sciences and the University’s Doctoral College.
  • Our postgraduate research students are also encouraged to participate in the West Midlands Legal Doctoral Network, where they will hone their research and presentation skills and build their networks with researchers in the region.
