Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Juris Scientiae Doctor

Format: Campus

Program Description:

An advanced graduate programme in law leading to the JSD (Juris Scientiae Doctor) degree is offered to a very limited number of highly qualified candidates by the Faculty of Law of the University. Applicants who meet the admission requirements are invited to submit a detailed outline of their proposed thesis and a detailed description of their research plans with their application forms. Such topics will have to be limited to those areas of law for which faculty and library resources will support original and useful work. It is expected that such resources will normally be available in four subject areas:
  • Marine Law
  • Environmental Law
  • International Law
  • Comparative Law
