About the Programme
PhD in Law programme at Sharda University focuses on increasing the expertise of the students in case law, statutory, constitutional law, and improve their bases for practising law as a profession. The PhD in Law degree programme is designed to prepare graduates for careers as legal scholars and teachers through a doctoral programme aimed at producing substantial academic research and writing under the close supervision of highly experienced faculty.
Throughout the duration of the programme, PhD students will enrol in a curriculum designed to help them acquire the background and research skills needed to complete a dissertation in the field of their interest and to prepare them for qualifying examinations that test the depth and breadth of the literacies and skills they have acquired. This programme offers emerging scholars an opportunity to contribute to the development of law as an academic field and provides an alternate pathway into law teaching alongside existing routes such as fellowships, advanced degrees in related fields, legal practice, and clerkships.
