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.

You will have access to structured training, research forums and networks. Training provides the opportunity to develop the research skills that can benefit your study and future career. You will be encouraged to present findings at conferences and symposia and some students may have the opportunity to undertake undergraduate teaching with the School, following appropriate 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, dispute settlement and civil justice procedures, human rights and humanitarian law, environmental law and criminal justice.

Research Areas, Projects & Topics

Research interests are wide-ranging, but there is particular expertise within the broad areas of:
-International law
-European law
-Human rights.

Current research is focused on:
-Civil liberties
-European social law and policy
-International economic law
-Dispute settlement
-Environmental law
-Animal welfare law.

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 vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. You will have meetings with your academic supervisors, however the regularity of these will vary depending on your own individual requirements, subject area, staff availability and the stage of your programme.

How You Are Assessed

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

Facilities

Lincoln Law School is based in the award-winning David Chiddick Building alongside Lincoln Business School. The building provides students with teaching and learning spaces, including lecture theatres, workshop rooms, IT laboratories, a purpose built moot court and a café.

Career and Personal Development

Throughout the research degree period, students are encouraged to take part in all activities associated with developing a research career.

The available postgraduate research degree training programmes consider career development issues and students are encouraged to maintain training and development logs throughout their studies. In some cases students will have the opportunity to support undergraduate students and experience seminar teaching.
