Master of Studies in Legal Research

Candidates for the Master of Studies in Legal Research (MSt) must write a supervised thesis of up to 30,000 words, as well as completing a course in legal research method. Students are normally expected to complete the course in three terms though the regulations allow up to five terms in total.

Whilst the MSt is a one year research degree in its own right, students may also proceed from the MSt to DPhil status - for more information about the procedures involved please follow the link to the graduate handbook above and the link to the DPhil below.

More about the DPhil and the alternative routes into it.
