University of Essex Doctoral Scholarships in Law

Have you got three years, a great idea for a piece of research and the passion to gain a PhD? Essex Law School has six University of Essex Doctoral Scholarships available to support talented PhD students starting in 2017-18.

As a member of one of the UK’s most diverse academic communities, you’ll join an active research cluster in either human rights, commercial law or public law (which include areas such as criminal law, family law or property law). You’ll have access to research training and the support needed to design, research and write your project. You’ll be co-supervised by two academics and your progress is reviewed twice a year.

With more than 70 academic members of staff, we have supervisors working with empirical and socio-legal, comparative, historical and theoretical methods. We are home to several large-scale cross-disciplinary research projects and networks. A full list of our research interests can be found here.

We are freer, more daring and more experimental than many traditional law schools. Our approach is global in outlook, based on justice, and reflects our commitment to providing a legal education and carrying out research that is relevant and responsive to the demands of a changing society. We are a top 20 UK law school for research (REF 2014).

In order to apply for research study at Essex, we require a 4,000-word research proposal. For more information on our research degrees and our facilities at Essex, visit our website.

  • A training bursary of £250 per year.
