The education at Durham Law School is led by its cutting edge research to tackle global real-world issues.
Postgraduate study at Durham Law School opens doors. Our Law School is a global leader with award-winning academic staff, top-ranked research publications and centres and distinguished alumni in government, the UK Supreme Court, the UK’s top firms and chambers and beyond.
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).
