The research activities are to a considerable extent coupled with transfer services to the doctoral procedures. In this context, the doctoral degree of Dr. phil. or Dr. jur. can be awarded at the

   - Faculty of Public Affairs or

   - Faculty of Sustainability

of the Leuphana University of Lüneburg. The focus of the dissertations in each case is strongly in the area of environmental or energy law, while the Dr. phil. focuses on interdisciplinarity.
