Program Overview

Program Description:

The Doctor of Juridical Science program at Central European University (CEU)  aims to provide an opportunity to promising young scholars to conduct comparative research into a complex problem in comparative constitutional law, international business law or human rights which has both profound theoretical and practical relevance. Supervision for doctoral projects is provided by CEU's international permanent and visiting faculty. 

Physical presence is required during the first three years of the SJD program, except for research periods abroad. The SJD degree is awarded on the basis of completion of the credit requirements from course work and other doctoral activities, and the successful public defense of the doctoral thesis (dissertation) before a panel composed of internal and external experts.

In addition to conducting independent research doctoral students benefit from doctoral courses, research grants enabling further research at renowned law schools or research institutions, opportunities for supervised teaching and a wide range of other doctoral activities (such as conferences, workshops, summer schools).

The doctoral graduates have been successful in obtaining post-graduate research positions and teaching appointments at leading academic institutions. They are also employed by NGOs and international law firms.
