CfA: Doctoral Programme Law & Society of the LSI
The LSI and the Berlin Graduate School of Social Sciences (BGSS) have established the joint doctoral programme Law & Society to promote innovative interdisciplinary legal research funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD, Graduate School Scholarship Programme). The programme is dedicated to investigating the role and function of law for tackling the current and fundamental challenges for a democratic global society (inter alia climate change, digital transformation, the rise of populism and the decline of the rule of law) from a genuinely interdisciplinary perspective. The programme offers interdisciplinary supervision and support of the doctoral students within the international structured doctoral programme of the BGSS. The LSI is a stimulating interdisciplinary and international research environment in the heart of Berlin at Humboldt-University.
The courses of the doctoral programme will be taught in English. However, applicants are expected to acquire a working knowledge of German. Fully funded language courses will be available as part of the doctoral scholarship. The doctoral thesis may be written in English or German.
