About

The Legal Theory and Public Affairs PhD program from Masaryk University mission is to prepare highly qualified specialists for specialized scientific and research professions in the field of law, analysts developing advanced tools and methods of law analysis and specialists dealing with complex legal issues and examining the role and position of law in society.

Overview

This Legal Theory and Public Affairs PhD program from Masaryk University aim is to master the theoretical knowledge necessary for a deep analysis of law in the context not only of legal sciences, but also of other disciplines reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of law. A multidisciplinary approach accepting sociological, ethnographic, anthropological, psychological or political (and other) methodology makes it possible to recognize the law in a wider social context and to emphasize its characteristics. 

The aim of the study is also to master practical knowledge and skills in order to enable the graduates to work as researchers employing independent and responsible judgement, to engage in research teams and to cope with the requirements of the current institutionalized scientific environment.

Career opportunities:

Graduates of the Doctoral Program of Legal Theory and Public Affairs will be able to engage in international research projects as highly specialized staff of research institutions dealing with the basic methodological questions connected with the research of law. In addition, they will be able to offer deep knowledge and skills needed for complex legal and analytical activities and will therefore be able to not only create these analyses, but also arguments for promoting specific legal actions and tools. The graduate will also develop multidisciplinary skills in the examination of the law that can be used to solve complex social issues and advise on possible legal steps.

Graduates of the doctoral study program will also be able to analyse semi-legal themes that cannot be solved in a conservative and classical way but in which it is necessary to accentuate the basic theoretical premises and objective methodological approach.
