The school takes the view that postgraduate research students and academics are all engaged in the same scholarly endeavours and can learn a great deal from each other.
To this end, our doctoral students are actively encouraged to engage in the wider scholarly community of the school and play a full role in our research activities.
While legal research is often an individual activity, many collaborative research activities, including co-authorship of publications, collaborations with visiting scholars, seminars, reading and discussion groups, and distinguished visitors' seminars, take place in the school. Postgraduate research students are welcome to participate in all such activities.
