Sorcha McCormack

Research Assistant

Originally from Ireland, I studied my BA, LLB and LLM in the National University of Ireland Galway. I then qualified as a Barrister-at-law at the Honorable Society of Kings Inns Ireland. I have previously worked for a Local Authority as a Special Educational Needs legal officer. Currently I am a part-time PhD student at Durham University.

Research Interests

My PhD examines the treatment of incapacitated rape complainants in law & society through a theory of vulnerability. Generally, I am interested in access to justice. I am currently working on a research project with Prof Luke Clements & Cerebra charity that explores the barriers met by children with neurological conditions while accessing their statutory rights.

Media Contact Areas

I am happy to talk to the media about aspects of our current research project, specifically issues regarding DFGs and home-school transport for disabled children.
