Jurisdiction in gender recognition: governing legal embodiment
My research discusses possible alternatives to the UK Gender Recognition Act 2004 on the tenth anniversary of its enactment. Taking ‘the Danish model’ of gender recognition as a case study, I am considering the allocation of jurisdiction in this new legislation with a view to developing a greater understanding of legal embodiment.
I am a Teaching Assistant for the School of Law, leading seminars on the third year core module Jurisprudence LAW3120.
