The PhD in Law is a full-time research degree and may be awarded after three to four years including a probationary year of supervised independent research on the basis of a thesis not exceeding , words exclusive of bibliography, table of contents and any other preliminary matter. While individual arrangements may vary considerably, PhD students may normally expect to receive one-to-one supervision once a month during the early stages of their research. Meetings may be less frequent thereafter. A PhD thesis must take due account of previously published work on the subject and must represent a significant contribution to learning, through, for example, the discovery of new knowledge, the connection of previously unrelated facts, the development of new theory or the revision of older views. A PhD research proposal of between 2, and 3, words in length should be submitted at the time of application for consideration and approval by the Faculty's Degree Committee. In the first year of study, candidates are initially registered for the Certificate of Postgraduate Study in Legal Studies and are required to attend the weekly classes in term-time provided by the Faculty's Research Training and Development Programme, which aims to provide an introduction to advanced research techniques and methods in law and cognate disciplines.
