Ph.D in Law


Y.K Thomas

Dear fellow visitors of this forum, I am wondering if this is the right site to pose my question by virtue of the fact that this is an LLM GUIDE Message Board. Anyway, I am of the strong view that some of you might be in a better position to offer me a matured and sensible advice.

I am considering of doing Phd in law pretty soon. I am thinking of choosing a particular field in Crime or Civil and do an in - depth research in it in order to get my phd.

Bearing in mind of the present legal industry, which of these two (Crime and Civil) is more lucrative and attractive to the public?

I don't want to spend more than 2 years on any Phd program so which institution can I enroll and finish within 2 years?

I welcome advice from everyone except FLORI(S) and his comrades who have tendencies of turning this Forum into anti - foreign and notoriously known by every sensible user as enemies of foreigners.

A PhD in the UK involves three-four years research - a university will not award a PhD in two years. Check out some doctoral (not PhD) programs in Europe for two year completion time frames.

Thanks for your comments on the durational aspect. I understand the Birbeck, University of London runs a two year full-time Phd.prohramme. This information can be found on the University website. Is that Correct?

I would doubt it's a two year programme - they are probably referring to the MPhil. But even if it is two years, in practice it would be highly improbable you'd complete in two years.

I appreciate your comments. However, it is stated in plain English at Birbeck University website ...." 2 year full-time Phd and 3 year part - time phd". It will be helpful if you could spend some few seconds of your valuable time and check this out.

I would suggest you phone the law school for clarification, but the minimum of two years will be for an MPhil.
