For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via www.graduate.ox.ac.uk/ucas The MPhil in Socio-Legal Research is a one-year research masterâ??s degree in the course of which you will write a 25,000- to 30,000-word dissertation. Students are encouraged to develop a topic that contributes to an understanding of law in society, drawing on empirical and theoretical perspectives. The degree can either serve as a qualification in its own right or as a route into the Doctor of Philosophy (DPhil) degree, including the DPhil in Socio-Legal Studies. The MPhil in Socio-Legal Research normally takes place over a full academic year. You will take a Centre for Socio-Legal Studies (CSLS) course, â??Theory and Methods in Socio-Legal Researchâ??, mainly during your first two terms. This is intended to develop your appreciation of law as a social phenomenon, to introduce various theoretical perspectives and to consider the variety of empirical techniques by which research questions may be addressed. Throughout the period of your studies, you will work with a supervisor with whom you should meet individually at regular intervals to discuss your project and who will provide feedback and advice. You will also be able to take part in an extensive range of seminar programmes and discussion groups, affording plentiful opportunities for interaction both with your peers and with academics working in the same or similar research areas. You should submit your final thesis by the second Friday in September. The examination method is the same as that used for the DPhil â?? two examiners are appointed who read the thesis and then conduct an intensive oral examination with you, known as a viva voce, before providing a written report to the Law Faculty. On that basis your thesis may be judged to have passed, so that you can be awarded the MPhil in Socio-Legal Research degree, or to be in need of revision, in which case it is referred back to you for re-submission at a later date; in extreme cases it may be rejected.
