Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a socio-legal scholar working across issues relating to law and gender and sexuality. My work is a primary reference in the field of the legal regulation of commercial sex. Scholarship includes original theoretical expositions in books and internationally peer-refereed journals as well as ground-breaking national and international empirical studies, funded by the government and by bodies such as the ESRC and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. My work has influenced both academic and policy debate and law reform. I am currently working on an ESRC funded project (>£600,000 ) on internet-based sex work and its regulation.

I have been a Visiting Scholar at the Universities of New York and the University of Stockholm where I researched the Swedish law relating to prostitution. I served as a member of the Scottish Parliament's Expert Panel on Prostitution and continue to advise policy in this area. I serve on the Management Committee and co-chair the scientific programme on 'Prostitution Policies and Politics' in the COST European research network IS1209: Comparing European Prostitution Policies: Understanding Scales and Cultures of Governance.

I teach in the areas of Legal Theory and Law and Society and am the Law School's Post-Graduate Director.
