Research studentships at Dundee School of Law
Dundee School of Law is inviting applications for two research studentships, which will be available from September 2008. The studentships will cover full tuition fees (at home/EU level) and a maintenance award of £10,000 per annum.
Candidates may apply for a research studentship in any of the following areas, which will further our research culture:
• Company Law
• Medicine and the Law
• Criminal Justice
• Family Law
• Private International Law
• Environmental Law
• Law of the Sea
• Public Law.
Additional details of research currently being undertaken by staff may be found on the School's website.
Successful candidates will usually be expected to undertake some teaching support activity in their second and third years, by agreement with the School of Law. Applicants must have, or expect to obtain, a first-class or high upper-second-class honours degree in law and be able to show commitment to pursuing postgraduate research.
To apply for a research studentship, candidates must submit a covering letter indicating why they wish to be considered, alongside their standard application for entry onto the Dundee School of Law research student programme, whether for the degree of LLM by research or PhD. The deadline for completed applications is 30 May 2008. (Visit the School's website for further information about making an application.)
Informal enquiries about the studentships may be emailed to Professor Janet McLean.
