UCL Laws PhD Students, Alex Green and Inga Thiemann, have been awarded prestigious Modern Law Review Scholarships.

Modern Law Review

The Scholarships, which will provide financial support during their studies, are awarded annually to students engaged in doctoral research on subjects that fall within the published interests of the Modern Law Review.

Each year, the Modern Law Review makes up to £90,000 of support available to current or prospective students at UK universities whose research is expected to make a substantial contribution to their field. Previous UCL Laws recipients of the Scholarship, which was established in 2003, include Dr Arman Savarian (2008-09), now Lecturer in Law at the University of Surrey, and Dr Lucinda Miller (2003), who is a Senior Lecturer in Laws at UCL Laws.

This year’s successful scholars, Alex and Inga, will each receive their award at the start of the new term in September 2014. Alex, now in his second year, is working within the field of International Law, and is supervised by Professors Riz Mokal and Stephen Guest, and Dr Douglas Guilfoyle. Inga, a third year PhD student is exploring: ‘A victim-based approach to Human Trafficking – hindered by patriarchal stereotypes’. Inga is supervised by Dr Virginia Mantouvalou, Professor Alison Diduck and Dr Nigel Balmer.
