Fields of Research
Professor Dr Johannes Reich supervises dissertations in German or English in his fields of expertise:
• Climate Change Law
• Comparative Constitutional Law
• Comparative Administrative Law
• Swiss Constitutional Law
• Swiss Administrative Law
• Swiss Environmental Law
The number of Ph.D-students not working in my team is to provide for excellent supervision. Successful applicants are expected to have outstanding academic credentials (MLaw, Lizentiat, JD etc.) and must demonstrate a proven interest in legal scholarship, intellectual curiosity, and personal integrity.
When applying as a Ph.D-student you are expected to have read and understood all relevant regulations and information on dissertation projects provided by the Faculty of Law of the University of Zurich (general admission requirements, administrative questions, application procedure)
It is strongly recommended to check whether dissertations on the same or similar topics have been published recently or are in progress. Link
Should you wish to a preliminary request for supervision of your dissertation project, please e-mail the following documents in pdf format to Professor Reich (firstname.lastname@example.org):
After an initial review of your documents, Professor Reich will get in touch with you and will, should your application look promising, discuss your dissertation project in more detail in a personal interview. On this basis, Professor Reich will decide on the preliminary support of your project. In case of a positive decision, you are expected to prepare a comprehensive project outline within (usually) 3-4 months. On this basis, Professor Reich will make his final decision on whether to take on the supervision of your dissertation project.
