Spotlight on our staff
Dr Conor McCormick
Lecturer, School of Law
I'm a lecturer in the School of Law, where my work focuses on constitutional and administrative law (or “public law” as it is sometimes called). Some of my administrative law research, in particular, focuses on human rights law protections for LGBT+ people.
We spend most of our leisure time socialising with friends, exploring National Trust sites and going to the theatre.
In the annual call for dissertation proposals issued to undergraduate law students, I list “LGBT+ Lives and the Law” as one of the project areas I would be happy to supervise. Last year, flowing from this, I supervised a research project on trans gender recognition and healthcare rights in Northern Ireland, and an investigation into LGBT+ rights limitations in Russia. One of the best things about being LGBT+ at Queen’s, for me, is that it provides a space for staff and students to address important issues of this kind in a highly supportive but academically rigorous environment.
