Ms Jane Sendall
Jane is a qualified solicitor (currently non-practising) who worked in both private practice and in the voluntary sector in family law. She has also taught law at York University and at BPP College, and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Jane is an external examiner for the Legal Practice Course at Manchester Metropolitan and Wolverhampton universities. In 2009, she graduated with an LLM in Research Methods in Law from Newcastle University.
Under the supervision of Professor Clare McGlynn and Dr Nicole Westmarland, Jane is undertaking an interdisciplinary PhD on forced marriage and the Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007. Jane is interested in the creation of a new remedy for those facing forced marriage and the new processes created by the Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007. In particular, Jane is interested in whether the barriers to justice to those women facing forced marriage will be resolved by the Act in the context of unresolved inequalities and violence against women.
