Dr Mitchell Travis
Lecturer in Law and Social Justice
I joined the School of Law in September 2015, having previously been a Lecturer of Law at the University of Exeter. I am a graduate of the Universities of Wolverhampton (LLB) and Keele (LLM, PhD Law).
I am interested in range of different issues that are underpinned by a theoretical commitment to feminist theory and the legal humanities. In particular, my work focuses on legal personhood, embodiment, intersexuality and professional legal ethics.
I currently contribute to the following modules;
- Gender and the Law
- Law and Society
- Lawyer, Ethics and Society
- Constitutional and Administrative Law.
I am happy to supervise students in any of my areas of expertise.
