Dr Eloise Scotford
Eloise Scotford joined King’s as Lecturer in September 2010. This followed three years as Career Development Fellow in Environmental Law, Faculty of Law and Corpus Christi College, University of Oxford, where she taught Environmental, EU and Administrative law. Dr Scotford obtained the University Medal in Law in her undergraduate degree at the University of Sydney. After working as Associate to the Chief Justice of Australia in Canberra and as Lecturer in Law at the Universities of Sydney and New South Wales, she successfully read for the BCL, MPhil and DPhil at the University of Oxford.
Dr Scotford’s research concerns environmental law, in UK law, EU law, and Australian law. In particular, she writes on the comparative legal treatment of environmental principles, waste law, and air quality and climate change regulation. At the core of this research is an inquiry into the nature of the law that applies to environmental problems as a body of legal doctrine – through mapping the subject (on its own terms and in relation to other legal subjects), critically analysing its rapid evolution and identifying questions of legal controversy and novelty.
