Residential Socio-Legal Masterclass for doctoral students

The Third Annual Socio-Legal Masterclass for second to fourth-year doctoral students is being held at St Catherine’s College Oxford from 3–4 September 2018. This year’s masterclass is being funded by the Oxford ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership, the Oxford Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, the London School of Economics, the Journal of Law and Society and the SLSA. The theme will be ‘Researching from the bottom up’.

This event gives a small group of 20 doctoral students the opportunity to spend two days talking to established academics about a variety of methodological approaches to the study of law. The Masterclass is free for ESRC students and there are bursaries available for other students allocated on a competitive basis.
