About

The School’s vision at the King's College London for its research culture is to create a focal point for interdisciplinary, transnational legal research that encourages cross-fertilisation of ideas within existing areas of strength while incorporating a new global perspective. The School is one of a handful of Law Research Schools around the world pioneering a transnational approach. 

Overview

Key facts:

  • Our aim at the King's College London is to foster innovative research that yields new insights for global challenges relating to personal responsibility, health, wealth, justice, communication and governance.
  • The Dickson Poon School of Law is home to over 90 doctoral researchers. Their projects cover a broad range of topics from intellectual property to information technology, from competition law to counter-rules, from global justice to gender equality. We offer two research degrees – the Masters of Philosophy in Law (MPhil) and the Doctor of Philosophy in Law Research (PhD).
  • While graduate research opportunities are organised through The Dickson Poon School of Law, you may well find that your work is related to research undertaken at one of the research centres associated with the School. 

Programme Structure

  • Graduate students are invited to attend and participate in staff seminars. The Graduate Legal Research Society represents the students and organises educational and social events. Graduate students have access to the Maughan Library where they have a dedicated work space. Students also have access to the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies Library, Senate House Library, and the British Library of Political and Economic Science at the London School of Economics. Our facilities are aimed at supporting research at the highest level.
