Private Law Postgraduate Research Students Discussion Group

The Private Law Postgraduate Research Students Discussion Group is a forum for postgraduate research students with an interest in private law to come together to discuss their work and exchange ideas. We meet once a term, usually on Monday of 9th week at 1pm.

At each meeting, a student will give a short, informal presentation on an aspect of their research, which will then be discussed by the group. Each meeting will be chaired by a Faculty member, but otherwise the participants will all be post-graduate students, mainly from Oxford but also from other institutions. As well as substantive discussion of the presentation, there will also usually be some discussion of topics relevant to thesis writing and career development.

To be added to the mailing list, please email with a request to join, stating the degree programme you are pursuing and the areas of private law you are researching on / have an interest in. Should you have any queries, please contact one of the Convenors: Amelie Berz (, and Kerry Sun (, and Batuhan Akkus (
