The Law Faculty of the University of Cambridge is offering up to 3 studentships for new PhD students commencing doctoral research in 2014/15. The value of a Scholarship will be up to £20,000 each year for three years. They are available for Home UK/EU and Overseas students undertaking full time research towards a PhD in private law, corporate law or tax law, with annual renewal subject to satisfactory academic performance. Studentships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit and research potential.
The studentships include a requirement that scholars contribute to the Law Faculty as part of their research training, in the form of providing up to 10 hours a week of teaching (in term time) on the LLM in private law papers (International Commercial Litigation, Law of Restitution, Commercial Equity), corporate law papers (Corporate Finance, Corporate Governance, Corporate Insolvency), or tax law papers (International Commercial Taxation).
There is no separate application form for a studentship. The selection of students for these awards will be based on the PhD application to the Faculty.
To be considered for a studentship, applicants must submit a Graduate Application Form [GRADSAF] for admission to the PhD in Law by not later than 15 January 2014. After submitting the application form, applicants have a further 14 days to upload the required supporting documentation (such as transcripts, references, and a detailed research proposal). Applicants should indicate in their research proposal that they wish to be considered for a Law Faculty studentship.
