Birkbeck School of Law is offering great funding opportunity
Prospective postgraduate students could benefit from the funding opportunity on offer at Birkbeck School of Law - the Ronnie Warrington Studentships for Doctoral Students.
The School of Law at Birkbeck College is internationally recognised for innovation and excellence in research, and in 2010 it is offering one research studentship for the MPhil/PhD programme. This studentship is named to commemorate the contribution of Dr Ronnie Warrington to legal scholarship and education and to the establishment of Birkbeck Law School.
The Law School welcomes applications for the studentships in all core areas of the curriculum. However, a strong interest in legal theory, socio-legal approaches and to interdisciplinary research would be an advantage.

The Ronnie Warrington Studentship may be awarded by the College on the recommendation of the School’s Research Committee to a candidate with an outstanding academic record who shows high research potential. This award will cover the cost of fees, plus a maintenance award, and will be made for MPhil/PhD research study only. It may be made for full-time or part-time study and to Home, EU students or International students. The amount of this award in 2010 is £9,000 for a full-time student, and this will be pro-rated at 60% for part-time students to £5,400 per year.
The deadline for application for the Ronnie Warrington studentship for 2010 is Friday 28th May 2010. Candidates must also have submitted an application to the College for the MPhil/PhD programme by this date. Candidates will be considered for admission first, and for the award only after they have been offered a place onto the programme.
