Our PhD Students Our PhD Students

Our current PhD students are engaged in original and significant research in a host of areas, across the research interests of the School: Media Law, Competition Law, International Law, Company and Commercial Law, Criminal Justice, Human Rights and Public Protest, and Trusts.

Many of our recent PhD students have gone on to secure themselves academic positions in the UK and abroad. Several of our current faculty (Gibbs-Kneller, Scharf, Peyer, and Ali) all undertook PhDs in the Law School, while other former PhD students are currently at UCL (Magdalena Raczynska), Lancaster (Mary Guy), Keele (Michael Fay), York (Katherine Wright), and Liverpool (Sujitha Subramanian). Wider afield, outside the UK, our former students can be found at Swinburne Law School, Australia (Sven Gallasch and Atje Kreuzmann-Gallasch), Yalova University, Turkey (Ilyas Cengiz) and Hail University, Saudi Arabia (Tareq Alshammari). Taking a slightly longer view, three former PhD students currently hold professional chairs: TT Arvind, at Newcastle, and Pinar Akman at Leeds, as well our own current Head of School, Andreas Stephan. Outside the academy, our PhD students have taken up positions at the UK Data Archive (Scott Summers) and OFGEM (Gyozo Pinter).
