Ms Amanda Keeling
School Academic Fellow in Disability Law
I completed my LLB at King’s College London in 2007 and went on to study an MA in Human Rights at University College London. After my MA I worked for several third sector organisations and NGOs in the human rights field, before joining the Cambridge Intellectual and Developmental Disability Research Group as a research assistant.
I joined the school in September 2015 from the University of Nottingham, where I had been studying for my PhD.
My broad research interest is in disability law and socio-legal studies, with a focus on empirical work. My research explores the role of law in our society; how it shapes professional practice, how it is interpreted by non-lawyers, particularly social care and health practitioners, and the impact of this practice on disabled people.
