The Centre for Socio-Legal Studies (CSLS) welcomes applications from students who wish to pursue research in any aspect of socio-legal studies, broadly defined. We offer programmes of study leading to MSt and DPhil degrees in Socio-Legal  Studies and to the MPhil in Law. MSt and DPhil programmes are wholly undertaken at the CSLS.

The Master of Studies (MSt) in Socio-Legal Research is a one-year research programme which requires students to write a 30,000-word dissertation on a topic falling within the field of Socio-Legal Studies. Students can either take this as a free-standing qualification or progress from the MSt to the DPhil in Socio-Legal Studies.

The Centre for Socio-legal Studies is able to accommodate a wide variety of research projects falling within the general field of Socio-Legal Studies.

For further information, please consult the current prospectus for full details and how to apply. You may also be interested in the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies current research students and notes from the field pages.
