Mrs Monika Lynch
PROFESSIONAL TUTOR IN LAW
Before being appointed as Tutor in Law at Liverpool Hope University, I was employed as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at Edge Hill University. I am currently writing up my doctoral thesis into the role of the law in the processes of state dissolution and state formation. This will be submitted over the next few months.
I also have experience of legal practice having worked within the UKâ€™s largest employment law consultancy firm, as well as for several substantial solicitorsâ€™ firms in the area of civil litigation.
In addition, I am a qualified public service interpreter.
I read law at Edge Hill University where I was awarded prizes for outstanding academic achievements. These included: The Beryl Russell Academic Achievement Scholarship in recognition of achieving highest APM in the Faculty of Arts & Sciences, The Duncan Gibbins Solicitors Scholarship and The Edge Hill University Mooting Excellence Award.
My 2017 LLM thesis entitled â€˜EU Solidarity: Constitutional Myth or Flawed Reality. A Study of the EUâ€™s Response to the Migration Crisisâ€™ was selected as the best postgraduate dissertation in the field of immigration and asylum by Journal of Immigration Asylum and Nationality Law.
Alongside my doctoral research I have co-authored a number of publications in the area of EU competition and public law.
I am a Member of the European Society of International Law and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
