Biography

Dr Jed Meers
LLB (York), MRes (York), PhD (York)

Lecturer

I have been at York for a long time. I studied for my undergraduate degree at York Law School, graduating with an LLB (Hons) in 2012, before commencing an Economic and Social Research Council 1+3 PhD studentship. I have undertaken research placements at the Faculty of Law, University of New South Wales, and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

I try to maintain a reasonably current (!) CV and make full text publications publicly available (whenever possible) on my Academia.edu page.
