We encourage applications from both domestic and international students interested in studying law as part of a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Doctor of Juridical Science (SJD), or the Master of Philosophy (MPhil) research degree.
We prefer to supervise students who can be based full-time at the ANU College of Law, though many of our students are part-time students, and some are based externally.
The research culture at ANU is strong and bolstered by the many domestic and international visitors to the ANU College of Law (academics, retired judges, practitioners), the many research centres hosted by the ANU College of Law, a national post-graduate conference (held bi-annually), organised by ANU College of Law research students for Australian research students in law, and/or related disciplines, and our location in Canberra close to the Australian parliament, public service, and the High Court.
The Australian National University campus is a unique and relaxed environment in which to undertake research. We hope that any time you spend with us as a research student is a rich and productive period of your intellectual life.
I look forward to discussing your research plans and research progress with you during the course of an ANU College of Law research degree.
