Jurisdiction in gender recognition: governing legal embodiment

Photo of Chris Dietz

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.
