Southampton Law School’s PhD programme offers an excellent opportunity to undertake independent research, providing you with a sure foundation and a clear pathway towards making a significant contribution to the development of knowledge in your chosen field.

Throughout, you will be supported and encouraged by specialists across a range of fields: many of our former students now pursue successful careers in academia or in private practice, others work for national governments and others within international organisations.
