Current MPhil/PhD students and their research topics

Research students in the Law School at Birkbeck are an important part of our research culture. We recruit very high-quality research students to support our reputation as a training ground for early career academics working from critical and socio-legal perspectives.  Find out which topics our academics are willing to supervise; or about our MPhil/PhD research degree. You may also find it useful to read the profiles of relevant academics as these also contain information about their supervision.

Current students who wish to be listed are shown below (this list is under construction), with a link to their ORCID record and thesis title where they have opted to include these. Birkbeck College encourages all its research staff and students to obtain and use an ORCID identifier.
