The 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, while the MPhil is available to students who have undertaken the BCL/MJur in the Law Faculty and wish to undertake a socio-legal project during the second year of their programme.

UK/EU (resident) candidates can be nominated by the Centre for an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded Grand Union Doctoral Training Partnership studentship, for either the MST or DPhil (full and part-time); this covers fees and maintenance for UK students, and fees-only for EU students. No separate application process applies; your application, if you qualify, will be considered automatically by assessors.

For more details on the Programmes offered by the Centre:

DPhil in Socio-Legal Studies

MSt in Socio-Legal Research

Applicants must be interested in thinking about the links between law and society. Members of staff in the CSLS can offer supervision of projects in most areas of socio-legal studies. We appreciate applications for theoretically informed empirical research, as well as more theoretical socio-legal inquiries.
