Biography

Chloë joined the Law School in September 2013. Prior to this, Chloë completed a PhD and Masters degree in Law at the University of Edinburgh and a Bachelor of Laws at the Universities of Glasgow and Sydney. She also spent a year working as a Legal Assistant at the Scottish Law Commission. Her main research interests include criminal law, legal theory, legal history, and the relationship between these areas. She is particularly interested in intellectual and cultural legal history, focussing on the ways that prevailing ideas (especially philosophical and religious ideas) have shaped the law's development and continue to inform our contemporary assumptions. 

 

Along with Prof Sharon Cowan (Edinburgh) and Prof Vanessa Munro (Warwick), Chloë is currently running the Scottish Feminist Judgments Project: https://www.sfjp.law.ed.ac.uk 


Chloë welcomes proposals for the supervision of PhD students who would like to work on i) criminal law theory ii) criminal law / justice iii) legal history and the history of legal thought (especially 18th and 19th century) iv) law and religion v) law and gender
