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.

Until 2017 she acted 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.
