A PhD by publication is a postgraduate research degree based on research you've already undertaken and had published (excluding self-publishing) before registering with us.
Your research outputs could be used by governments, organisations and individuals in the development and implementation of new legal policies.
Recent examples of our research include our work around the law of succession and the sale of ivory in the UK. When you study for a postgraduate research degree with us, you'll make your own contribution to our exceptional work.
Eligible research outputs include peer-reviewed academic papers, complete books or chapters in anthologies, and other materials accepted for publication, exhibited or performed. You'll have to submit these materials for examination between 6-12 months after registering with us.
