General information on PhD program in Law

Applications for admission to the Ph.D. in Law at the University of Strasbourg will be available starting on June 1st 2020.

A thesis may be written in French, English or German, upon authorization by the Director of the Doctoral School. A thesis may be written in another language only if a Joint international supervision of the thesis is concluded (joint supervision has to be undertaken as a cotutelle with a formal contract signed between the two research institutions. Applicants need a supervisor in both universities and are expected to share their time between the two institutions).

If the thesis is not written in French, the Ph. D. candidate is required to write a substantial summary (around 10%) of the thesis in French.


In order to become eligible for admission and enrol as a PhD candidate, you must first have secured funding that covers both living costs and the costs relating to the research project for the entire doctoral training period. This could be a university or governmental fellowship or another external funding source.
