Doctoral research programmes (PhDs) take a proud place in the world-class research environment and community at Brunel. PhD students are recognised and valued by their supervisors as an essential part of their departments and a key component of the university's overall strategy to develop and deliver world-class research.
Brunel Law School has a long-established reputation as a research-led law school. Excellence in research matters to us and we actively promote research activities. We encourage our PhD students to participate in all relevant research activities, particularly presenting papers on their new research findings. We are particularly committed in assisting the development of high quality early career researchers for the legal academy and for the profession. We are an intellectually dynamic and diverse community of scholars who share a clear commitment to broad-based legal research. Together, we have created a strong international research environment. Our research reaches from the local to the global, addressing important challenges in domestic law as well as universal legal, economic, and social issues.
Over the years, Brunel Law School has established itself as a major player in the UK law research landscape and is ranked as one of the top law schools in the UK for research.
The impact of our diversity within the Brunel Law School is evident in the breadth of our research activity which can be divided into public and private law. Our research activity embraces doctrinal, theoretical, critical, contextual and comparative approaches to the study of law. It reaches from the local to the global, addressing important challenges in domestic law as well as universal legal, economic, and social issues. We investigate in depth how best to create and maintain just societies that fairly balance both personal freedom and authority, and the rights and responsibilities of individuals and society.
