SCLP PhD studentships
The Surrey Centre for Law and Philosophy (SCLP) invites applications for two PhD studentships in legal philosophy, for entry in July 2021; the deadline is April 7 2021.
The Force of Law: Anything Special?
One of the traditional main tasks of general jurisprudence has been to explain the distinctive demands that the law makes of us; recently, however, several prominent authors have argued that there isn’t anything distinctive about legal normativity - the purpose of this PhD project is to adjudicate this foundational dispute.
Law’s Emotional Impact: The Overlooked Emotional Character of Legal Authority and the Rule of Law
This studentship will support a project that expands our understanding of the traditionally neglected emotional dimension of the law, either by investigating the emotional character of legal authority in general, or by studying the way in which the emotional character of the law is manifested in one or more specific areas of law.
These 3-year studentships cover:
- Full UK/EU tuition fee covered
- Stipend at £15,285 p.a. (2020/21)
- RTSG of £1,000 p.a.
- Personal Computer (provided by the department)
For more information about the studentships/projects and how to apply, please visit the respective studentship pages (links above). We encourage prospective applicants to contact the supervisory teams in good time, before applying. The deadline is April 7.
