Southampton Law School is a global Law School, firmly rooted in the UK with a mission to respond to the greatest global challenges that humanity faces. We have a robust internationalisation agenda and as a Law School in a Russell Group University (QS ranked 78th) we are committed to research-driven legal educationas well as engaged, innovative and impactful scholarship. Southampton Law School was ranked 16th in the UK in REF2021 for outputs. This places us in the top 25% of Law Schools in the UK, with 81% of all outputs submitted considered to be “world-leading” or “internationally excellent”. Our triple helix approach (people, education, research and enterprise) accentuates the value of our people and exemplifies our constant pursuit of solidarity and social cohesion among staff members, who comprise a diverse international cohort of renowned leading as well as early career researchers.
Our research centres serve as essential clusters for the achievement of our objectives. The seven centres are the Law and Technology Centre; Property, People and Community Centre; Private and Commercial Law Centre; Institute for Maritime Law (IML); International Law and Globalisation Centre; Global Constitutionalism Centre; as well as the Stefan Cross Centre for Women, Equality and Law.
A vibrant PhD community is integral to the success of our School. We, therefore, now seek to build on our existing strong research environment by inviting applications for two studentships. While the topic may be in any field of law, we would particularly welcome applications in the following areas of strategic importance:
Successful applicants will be assigned two supervisors and will join one of our research centres and contribute to the objectives of the respective centres. PhD students will gain teaching experience through our PGR teaching programme and will be expected to teach one or more core modules (Public Law, Criminal Law, Contract Law, Tort Law, Equity and Trusts, and Property Law), or other modules as directed by the Head of School (https://www.southampton.ac.uk/doctoral-college/researcher-resources/policy.page). We offer supportive mechanisms to PhD students to equip them to deliver high-quality teaching, in conjunction with the University of Southampton’s Doctoral College.
