Researchers and research students with specialist interests in information, data and communication law and policy are invited to apply to IALS research schemes for the academic year 2016/17.
IALS, part of the School of Advanced Study at the University of London, offers a number of opportunities to those who wish to undertake research in the field of information law and become a member of the recently launched Information Law and Policy Centre.
MPhil/PhDs: These are research degrees examined wholly by thesis, prepared under the supervision of a member of staff of the University. The Institute is able to accept a limited number of MPhil and PhD students who are of high quality and whose research topics fit with the Institute’s own research interests, including Information and Communication Law and Policy. Specialist supervision would be offered by experienced visiting or internal staff at the IALS and University of London. Interdisciplinary applications are welcomed. Please visit this page for more information. Information about possible sources of funding can be found here.
Visiting fellowships: The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies has over the years welcomed many established scholars, mostly from overseas, to work in its well-stocked library and participate in academic activities. These Fellowships are designed for persons already established in their own areas of activity who are undertaking work within fields covered by or adjacent to the Institute’s own research programmes, including Information Law and Policy. These Fellowships are not confined to academic lawyers, but are equally open to scholars of other disciplines working in the relevant fields, and to practising lawyers or judges with scholarly projects to pursue. Please visit this page for more information. Applications for the 2016/17 scheme will close on 31 January 2016.
