Dr Emily Rose



Personal statement

I am a socio-legal researcher in the area of labour law. My academic background is in both law and sociology (LLB, MA (sociology), and PhD (sociology)). This enables me to bring an interdisciplinary approach to my research. 

My research interests include the relationship between work and personal life, working time, and access to justice in employment disputes. I have published a range of articles and reports on these topics. I am currently undertaking a research project funded by the Carnegie Trust entitled Managerial prerogative and the contours of employees' work and non-work lives ( From 2012 to 2015 I was involved in an ERC funded research project entitled Citizens Advice Bureaux and employment disputes.  Details of this can be found here:

My teaching focuses on labour law, legal theory and legal research methods.  I am the module leader for the following classes: Regulating Work in a Global Economy, Law and Society, and Legal Research Skills and Methods.
