Dr Stephanie Law is a Lecturer in Law within Southampton Law school at the University of Southampton.

Since 2019, I have been a lecturer within Southampton Law School at the University of Southampton. Prior to taking up this appointment, I was a Senior Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for Procedural Law, and lectured at both Luxembourgish and German universities. I initially studied law at the University of Glasgow (LL.B., First Class, 2009) and the University of Edinburgh (LL.M., Distinction, 2010) and I completed my Ph.D. at the European University Institute in Florence (2014). Prior to joining the MPI, I was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Faculty of Law at McGill University, Montréal, a position for which I received funding from The Leverhulme Trust. During the course of my doctoral research, I was a visiting scholar at Columbia Law School and a stagiaire in the Cabinet of Judge Christopher Vajda at the Court of Justice of the European Union.

Research interests

My research interests are in the areas of EU private and international law, particularly fundamental rights and the protection of vulnerable persons, transnational private and public regulation, legal theory and methodology (with a focus on general principles and comparative law in international courts). I have worked in these fields as a researcher and consultant for a number of organisations, national governments and international institutions (including the European Commission, amongst others). Moreover, I have taught in Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Germany and the UK. I am currently a member of the Academic Research Panel of Blackstone Chambers and of the Open Society Foundation Abusive Lending Working Group.
