PhD candidates at the Sociology of Law Department hold three seminars during their education - a start-up seminar, a mid-seminar, and a final seminar. Participation in seminars is an essential part of the PhD education to fully reach the learning outcomes. The seminars are always in English.

John Woodlock, PhD Candidate at the Sociology of Law Department, Lund University
John Woodlock's research focuses on the field of European Union (EU) civil aviation and the profession and professionalism of licensed aircraft maintenance engineers in Europe. In particular, his PhD project explores, from a socio-legal perspective, the complexity and interplay between legal norms and legal forms, civil aviation organisational structures and professional norms in relation to the broader notions of risk, safety and legal accountability.
The external discussant is Kenneth Arne Pettersen Gould, University of Stavanger.
