Emily Hancox is completing her PhD in European Union Law at the University of Edinburgh where she holds a Principal’s Career Development Scholarship. Her thesis, ‘The Inter-Relationship between Overlapping Norms in the EU Legal Order’ is supervised by Professor Niamh Nic Shuibhne and Dr Tobias Lock.

Emily’s primary research interests lie in EU and constitutional law, focusing specifically on questions of norm inter-relationship.

As a Max Weber Fellow, Emily plans to build upon her PhD research and explore questions relating to both when and how courts prioritise (or entrench) particular legislative measures or values within legal systems and the implications that flow from this.

Emily has wide-ranging experience teaching public law and EU law at the undergraduate and post-graduate level. As a Lecturer in Law at the University of Oxford, Emily taught EU, constitutional and administrative law. At the University of Edinburgh, Emily taught several courses relating to EU constitutional law, EU citizenship and EU fundamental rights on the EU LLM programme as well as courses on public law, EU law and legal methods at the undergraduate level.
