Student Papers

This guide provides information on how to access University of Washington School of Law J.D., LL.M. and Ph.D. student papers

Searching for Ph.D. dissertations

Ph.D. dissertations are submitted to the University of Washington, not the University of Washington Law school.

Prior to 2012, the law library may have print copies in the collection. Search the title in the law library catalog to see if we have it. If you cannot find it, then we do not have it.

After 2012, Ph.D. dissertations may be available on Research Works. To find Ph.D. dissertations on Law, click on Dissertations and Theses within Research Works and then scroll down to Law. You can find out more about Research Works by consulting the University of Washington Research Works FAQ.
