Postgraduate Research Events

There are many events run by and for students at the School of Law; including the annual PGR Colloquium, which encourages the sharing of ideas and thoughts through the presentation of each student’s research in a conference format; and the University-led 3 Minute Thesis event which feeds into the national 3MT competition.

As well as events that focus on academia, there are numerous dates throughout the year dedicated to the "student voice" - ensuring our PGR students play an active role in life at the School of Law, and there are also various social and collaborative events, building on the community feel at the School of Law.
