General information
This postgraduate is designed as a cutting-edge approach to first-year PhD training in a collaborative framework with the World Trade Institute of the University of Bern as principal partner. Researchers from a wide-range of other European partner universities participate as lecturers and external examiners. This programme combines the advantages of close, personalised supervision with those of integration into bigger research units of excellence with an international community of interdisciplinary researchers. The first-year PhD training is a novel approach to PhD supervision: PhD candidates analyse legal problems and academic comment together with their supervisor and have the opportunity to engage renowned experts in the fields of their research. This rigourous training ensures they have the knowledge and tools to complete a PhD research project that is internationally recognised as excellent.
Target group and entrance requirements
The postgraduate targets students and professionals interested in pursuing a PhD in the area of globalisation and international economic law. This includes candidates with research interests in doctrinal questions of WTO, international investment protection and related fields of international law and those with research interests in this substantive area of law that involve research in legal and political philosophy or IR theory.Candidates must have a Masters in Law with a grade average equivalent to a B+ in the Anglo-Saxon system. Candidates from the US with a juris doctor only are accepted. Candidates with a master degree whose first degree is not in law have to demonstrate that they have sufficient knowledge of law. All candidates must propose a research project that falls in the domain of globalisa­tion and international economic law. Candidates whose mother tongue is not English must provide evidence of their command of English through internationally standardised tests.
