Professor Jill Marshall
Professor Jill Marshall is a Professor of Law in the School of Law at Royal Holloway and a qualified lawyer in England and Wales (admitted as a solicitor 1992). Her work focuses on the relationship between law and living well, human flourishing, what it means to be free, and women’s human rights. This includes analysis of conceptions of privacy, freedom, care, belonging and recognition and how they relate to the purpose of law, including human rights and anti-discrimination law purporting to protect aspects of our personal freedom and identities. Current projects include analysing secrecy and confidentiality in pregnancy and childbirth, ‘children born of conflict’, freedom of religion, expression, identity and autonomy. She is the author of three books including Human Rights Law and Personal Identity and has written widely on these topics. She is Royal Holloway’s human rights research cluster lead for Global Challenges Research Fund work.
