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 Doctor of Philosophy (DPhil) degree entails the carrying out of a research project in the field of socio-legal studies and writing a thesis of between 75,000 and 100,000 words under the guidance of the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, an international leader for the study of laws in societies. The thesis must make a significant and substantial contribution to its field. Students are encouraged to develop a topic that contributes to an understanding of law in society, drawing on empirical and theoretical perspectives. As a DPhil student you will in the first instance be admitted to Probationer Research Student (PRS) status. During the first year you must take the â??Theory and Methods in Socio-Legal Researchâ?? course. Part-time students will be able to tailor their study and methods training in liaison with their supervisor, and may undertake the â??Theory and Methods in Socio-Legal Researchâ?? course over a two-year period. The â??Theory and Methods in Socio-Legal Researchâ?? course is intended to develop your appreciation of law as a social phenomenon, to introduce various theoretical perspectives and to consider the variety of practical empirical techniques by which research questions may be addressed. In your third term (sixth term for the part-time pathway), you can apply for transfer from probationary status to full DPhil status by taking a qualifying test (QT) which is assessed by two examiners. This requires you to submit a well-developed research outline plus a substantial piece of written work. A similar exercise then takes place in your sixth term (twelfth term for the part-time pathway), when you report on your progress and submit a substantial part of the proposed thesis for a further assessment that leads to a confirmation of DPhil status. After three or at most four years (no later than eight years for the part-time pathway), you submit your final thesis to two examiners, respectively internal and external to the University. The examiners will read your thesis and then conduct an 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 a DPhil, 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, the thesis may not be passed. 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.
