Modern Law Review Scholarship

The Centre for Internet Law and Policy’s own PhD student, Laura Martin, has been awarded the Modern Law Review Scholarship for the duration of her PhD. These prestigious awards are given annually based on nominations submitted by Heads of School. This is the first time that a PhD student at the University of Strathclyde has been awarded the scholarship. Laura’s research focuses on the challenges of modern day worker surveillance. Her work will analyse whether data protection, privacy and labour law can adequately regulate workplace surveillance by striking an appropriate balance between employers’ legitimate interests and workers’ fundamental rights. Laura transitioned to PhD Candidate after graduating with a First Class Honours degree from Strathclyde in May 2017. She will continue to progress with her PhD under the supervision of Professor Lilian Edwards.
