Centre for Law, Justice & Journalism

The Centre for Law, Justice and Journalism is the first major interdisciplinary centre in the UK to develop a broad yet focused interface between law, justice and journalism in society.

We aim to harness and maximise opportunities for research collaboration, knowledge transfer and teaching to become a centre of excellence.

The Centre brings together the expertise in the disciplines of Law, Criminology and Journalism at City University London. Other disciplines and fields such as International Politics, Communications Policy and Forensics provide important intellectually relevant and distinctive additions to the Centre.

CLJJ PhD students and associates run a blog for informal discussion and debate around the CLJJ's activities, events and research at City University London.

Centre for Law, Justice and Journalism Research Studentships

The Centre is offering two three-year, full-time doctoral Research Studentships, available to both home and overseas fee-paying students. Applications can be made to undertake doctoral studies in a topic relevant to one of the main themes of the Centre:

For entry in October 2014, the studentships will attract a bursary of £15,000 per annum in addition to payment of the tuition fees. Successful candidates will usually be expected to undertake some teaching support activity in their second and third years, by agreement with the School concerned.
