Susy’s research is interdisciplinary, critical and socio-legal; it can be classed under three categories:

  • Criminal Law: Susy has conducted several projects addressing criminal law doctrine within the context of social history, legal history, emotions, psychology and literature.
  • Criminology: Susy’s writing focuses on prison history, cultural and critical criminology. She is interested in artwork representation of history and the critical analysis of popular culture.
  • Legal education: Susy has written on critical legal education and she is currently researching non-traditional law students’ perceptions of their learning experiences. She is also writing a microhistory of Eliza Orme, the first English female law student who was awarded a degree by University of London in 1888.
