The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies at the School of Advanced Study offers a number of opportunities to those who wish to undertake research at the Information Law and Policy Centre.
MPhil/PhDs: These are research degrees examined wholly by thesis, prepared under the supervision of a member of staff of the University. The Institute is able to accept a limited number of MPhil and PhD students who are of high quality and whose research topics fit with the Institute’s own research interests, including Information and Communication Law and Policy. Specialist supervision would be offered by experienced visiting or internal staff at the IALS and University of London. Interdisciplinary applications are welcomed. Please visit this page for more information. Information about possible sources of funding can be found here.
Visiting fellowships: The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies has over the years welcomed many established scholars, mostly from overseas, to work in its well-stocked library and participate in academic activities. These Fellowships are designed for persons already established in their own areas of activity who are undertaking work within fields covered by or adjacent to the Institute’s own research programmes, including Information Law and Policy. These Fellowships are not confined to academic lawyers, but are equally open to scholars of other disciplines working in the relevant fields, and to practising lawyers or judges with scholarly projects to pursue. Please visit this page for more information. Applications are accepted annually and close on 31 January.
