¿Qué aprenderé?

Research students are welcomed into a cross-disciplinary, collaborative academic community where they are encouraged to conduct research with the support of a dedicated supervisory team.

The programme offers access to structured training, research forums, and networks. Training provides the opportunity to develop research skills which may be beneficial during the course and in future employment. Students are encouraged to present findings at conferences and symposia, and some may have the opportunity to undertake undergraduate teaching with the School, subject to proper training.

We encourage applications from students who wish to conduct research into any of our specialist areas of expertise, including EU law, international law, commercial law, medical- and health law, alternative dispute resolution, human rights law, humanitarian law, environmental law, and criminal justice.

How You Study

Research students are assigned a Director of Studies and a second supervisor. Students are expected to work independently on their research projects under the advice and direction of the supervision team.

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the majority of time is spent in independent study and research. Students will have meetings with their academic supervisors, but the frequency of these will vary depending on individual requirements, subject area, staff availability, and stage of programme. There is a requirement for full-time students to have a monthly progress meeting with their supervisors. Part-time students meet with their supervisors bi-monthly.

How You Are Assessed

Students are required to demonstrate adequate and appropriate progress on an annual basis. The PhD is usually awarded based on the quality of your thesis and ability to present and successfully defend your chosen research topic in an oral examination (viva voce). Students are also expected to demonstrate how their research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or practice.

Career and Personal Development

Law graduates have career prospects both within and outside of the legal profession. Lincoln Law School’s connections with legal practice provide opportunities for engagement with practising solicitors and other professionals.
