...will be useful for the growing numbers of PhD students in UK law schools, particularly those who may be coming to study in the UK for the first time. Those considering whether the PhD is right for them will undoubtedly benefit from the book's clear and pragmatic approach, but many topics (for example, writing up and the viva and beginning to build an academic career) will be relevant to those currently in the throes of doctoral study. ...a concise and easy to read introduction [which] certainly fulfils its stated objective of providing an accessible and readable guide to the UK doctoral degree. -- Bonnie Holigan * Edinburgh Student Law Review Volume 2, Issue 1 *
[The book was] extremely helpful in being awarded the PhD studentship, especially the section about methodology about which I was asked and without the book I would not have been able to answer, so thank you very much, I would definitely recommend your book. -- Sarah Cunningham PhD Student, Lincoln University
I...was immensely pleased to see a new publication from Hart Publishing called Getting a PhD in Law by Caroline Morris and Cian Murphy. I believe it is the first of its kind and has been an enjoyable read...It provides practical guidance in an easy to read format. In its Introductory chapter it explains the nature and value of a PhD in law and why a PhD in Law is different to those taken in other disciplines. It makes sense and puts everything that I have thought into perspective. -- Christopher Hull * *
...a very fine guide to doctoral studies in law [which] answers many questions and provides much invaluable advice. I don't think a doctoral student should be without it. -- William A. Schabas * PhD Studies in Human Rights Blog *
