The Philip Leverhulme Prize is open to Legal Scholars every three years.

The prize is for £100,000 to be used over two or three years, for research expenses, research assistance or for teaching replacement.

Read the scheme guidance on the Leverhulme Trust website.

Each institution is limited to 3 nominations/applications in any prize subject. Oxford's internal selection process will be managed by the Social Sciences Divisional Office.

The Leverhulme Trust has clear guidelines on its approach to grant-making. Members of the Faculty have been awarded quite a few grants by the Leverhulme Trust over the last few years, however we have only been awarded two Philip Leverhulme Prizes.
