The Open University Law School PhD studentships are based on full-time study for three years at the Milton Keynes campus. Students are normally expected to live within commuting distance of Milton Keynes.
Studentships cover tuition fees, a generous research training support grant and a stipend (circa £15,285 per annum) for 36 months. The Law School is offering studentship opportunities relating to women’s rights and Covid-19 (see: http://law-school.open.ac.uk/sites/business-school.open.ac.uk/files/files/Studentship%20Proposals/law01.pdf) and post-pandemic responses concerning technology, data and the law (see: http://law-school.open.ac.uk/sites/law-school.open.ac.uk/files/files/law02v2.pdf). The outbreak and resulting European-wide lockdown has had significant ramifications for women’s (human) rights, and for ensuring their safety, dignity and equal treatment. Technology, data, law, regulation and governance are also under the microscope with an eye on the pandemic’s economic, political, philosophical and cultural effects.
