JUR-8900 PhD Thesis, Law - 150 ECTS
In their thesis students must show that they can produce an independent work of a high standard as regards the formulation of research questions, concept clarification, and the methodological and theoretical basis. Strict requirements must be set as regards documentation, objectivity, transparency and completeness.
However, the standard must not be set higher than the work it would normally be practical to carry out on a thesis during the nominal length of study.
In order to submit the thesis for assessment, the educational component of 30 credits must be approved, which involves approval of a memo that reflects on the learning outcome from the completed courses, and the significance they have had for the work on the thesis. The student must also have submitted a 15-20 page scientific article that is, in form and content, suitable for publication in a legal journal.
A PhD degree in legal science is awarded on the basis of:
- Approved completion of the courses in the educational component, or other approved academic education or qualifications.
- An approved trial lecture on a given subject.
- An approved scientific thesis and a satisfactory defence in a public disputation.
