The Doctoral School of the Faculty of Law and Political Sciences of the University of Szeged was established in 2002. In the previous period PhD students had participated in individual training. Our Doctoral School aims to give the opportunity for doctoral students to deepen their knowledge in legal research methodology and to gain more experience in the theoretical background and the practical issues according to their special professional interests. Our Doctoral School provides facilities to pursue doctoral studies in the frame of 6 alternative training programmes. Beside the well-known university professors, there are numerous PhD supervisor associate professors having much experience. The younger generation of scholars at the Faculty also undertakes supervising tasks, therefore, we can provide consultants to nearly any chosen research topics to those interested.
The core fields of the programmes are Historical and theoretical jurisprudence, Comparative law, Civilistic legal sciences, Public law, Criminal law, International and business law, European law, Public policy, Social security and administration, International relations, and the curriculum combines both theories and practices through law in action and legal case studies.
