PhD in Law

Course Info

Conduct your studies in English, to solidify your status as an international expert of law.

Doctoral studies and their duration depend on the form of studies you choose: full-time studies (4 years) or part-time studies (6 years). Persons who have independently prepared a doctoral dissertation (or monograph) and have scientific publications can obtain a doctoral degree externally (within 1 year).

In order to successfully complete doctoral studies and obtain a doctoral degree after defending a doctoral dissertation, you will need to pass the exams, publish at least two scientific articles in scientific publications, present research findings at least two international conferences, and do an internship at foreign research and study institution.

By choosing the topic of a future dissertation, you can examine a specific legal problem or explore a field of law from a philosophical perspective. Your dissertation preparation and research will be supervised by a scientific supervisor who is a specialist in his/her field.

At MRU, you will also find a comparatively low tuition fee, together with potential state and private scholarships available.
