The Department of European & Comparative law has particular strengths as a centre for Ph.D. supervision. This is because of the current areas of specialisation, expertise and publication of the current members of the academic staff, or the range of interests of all academic staff taken together, as well as the range of teaching that is provided by the Department. It welcomes in particular applications from Ph.D. candidates who wish to write their thesis in the following areas of law. This is not to exclude other areas of research, which can also be considered, but simply to offer a general guide as to the main areas of current major research going on in the Department, with ongoing research projects, books and other publications already in course of production.  Such main areas include:
