|Description:||York's PhD in Socio-Legal Studies is at the vanguard of a growing number of postgraduate programs in Europe and North America in interdisciplinary legal studies. Our PhD is the first such doctoral program in Canada that is not based in a law school. Students who are accepted into our program will join faculty with a strong commitment to research and scholarship. Our program consists of scholars drawn from law and society, criminology, political science, sociology, psychology, history, communication studies, women’s studies and law.
Our faculty is actively involved in building an academic community of socio-legal scholars. We are doing this through our participation and leadership in professional associations as well as through our projects and published work.
