A Studentship in Law and Society in a Global Context at Queen Mary

[We have the following announcement.]

The Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context (CLSGC), part of the Department of Law, is offering a PhD Studentship to fund a doctoral student to conduct research in the area of the history of ideas about law and society in a global context. The CLSGC would welcome applications for this funding award from applicants whose research proposals outline how they aim to investigate the social context in which such ideas are articulated either by individual jurists or groups of jurists.

The research will be conducted at the CLSGC, which was established in the summer of 2013. It is a home for multidisciplinary research into the global dimensions of law and society. At its core, the CLSGC aims to work towards a better theorization of law in its changing social contexts, exploring the challenges posed for this endeavour by law’s increasingly important global dimensions. One of the key planks of CLGSC’s research program is the historical dimension of the globalisation of law, including the globalisation of ideas about law and society.



Applicants for this Studentship must satisfy the Queen Mary PhD entry requirements for a PhD in law, and only applicants who have completed the on-line application process (and who have submitted all required supporting documents) to the PhD programme prior to the funding submission deadline will be considered for funding.
