Her most recent work includes:

During the evening we will explore a range of conversation themes, including Geraldine's journey into a legal profession and her academic and legal involvement in a wide range of national and international issues.

Whilst Geraldine is an established academic, much of her work reaches beyond traditional academic audiences and therefore this event is open to everyone from within and outside of the university, including practitioners and students.
