About the study programme

Doctoral students extend and enhance their theoretical and methodological expertise and skills in the field of law. In their doctoral thesis, which may also address an interdisciplinary topic, they work independently to explore new academic questions. The aim of the Doctoral Programme of Law is to further develop the ability to conduct independent academic work, and to train and support early career researchers in law. Doctoral students must have the ability to pursue independent academic work which will contribute new insights to the understanding of law.



„The main reason I decided to start a doctoral programme was the opportunity to spend several years studying a topic of my own choice in depth. The doctoral programme at the University of Graz offers a good deal of freedom to shape and select your research topic, but also provides professional, personalised support and supervision when it is needed.“
