Exciting research opportunities

Durham Law School is a global top 50 QS World Ranked department. We currently have over 60 excellent research students - from around the UK, mainland Europe and all corners of the globe.

Our research students are accommodated in the Law School’s dedicated postgraduate research suite, with beautiful views of Durham Cathedral. This comprises an extensive work area (60 workspaces), state-of-the-art IT facilities and two project rooms. All research students become a member of at least one Research Group and, in some cases, have opportunities to become deputy convenors (as in the Human Rights Centre, Durham European Law Institute and Law and Global Justice group).
