Shaw Foundation Fellow in Law

I am the Shaw Foundation Fellow in Law at Lincoln College. Before coming to Lincoln, I had posts at the University of Oxford (Balliol) and Cambridge (Emmanuel College).

I completed my first degree in law at the Charles University in Prague (summa cum laude) and also hold an LLM in European Integration from Europa-Institut, Saarland University. I obtained my MSt in Legal Research and DPhil from University of Oxford. I have been an academic visitor to several law schools, including Harvard and University of Michigan as a Fulbright scholar and the Jean Monnet Center of NYU as an Emile Noël Fellow. 

I teach Constitutional Law, EU Law, Jurisprudence and Feminist Jurisprudence to undergraduates and contribute to the BCL/MJur course on Comparative Equality Law. 

My research interests include gender legal studies and feminist jurisprudence, equality and antidiscrimination law, Czech law, constitutional and EU law.

I currently act as an Advisor to the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic on issues of gender and law.

My book, Gender Equality in Law: Uncovering the Legacies of Czech State Socialism, has been published by Hart/Bloomsbury in June 2017.
