About me

Sarah joined the Law Department as an Assistant Professor in September 2018. Her research is about how particular categories (like ‘the child’ and ‘the individual’) are constructed in law and about the assumptions that are made in European human rights law and domestic law about relationships. She wrote her PhD thesis (‘On coming to terms: How European human rights law imagines the human condition’) at the LSE. Prior to that, she studied at the University of Cambridge (LLM), Sciences Po (Erasmus year), and the LSE (LLB).
