The research will be conducted at the CLSGC, which was established in the summer of 2013. It is a home for multidisciplinary research into the global dimensions of law and society. At its core, the CLSGC aims to work towards a better theorization of law in its changing social contexts, exploring the challenges posed for this endeavour by law's increasingly important global dimensions. One of the key planks of CLGSC's research program is the historical dimension of the globalisation of law, including the globalisation of ideas about law and society.
The studentships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence. The application process for these awards is highly competitive. Shortlisted candidates will be required to attend an interview.
