UCL Laws is delighted to welcome four new members of academic staff.

Dr Megan Donaldson is a Lecturer in Public International Law. Dr Donaldson works in public international law, its theory and history, particularly the development of the international legal order in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. She is working on a book on ideas and practices of secrecy and publicity in international law, drawing on archives of the League of Nations Secretariat, and of foreign ministries in Britain, France and the United States.

Rory Kelly is a Lecturer in Criminal Evidence and Criminal Law. At present, he is particularly interested in the relationship of prevention and punishment within criminal law and sentencing. Rory teaches Criminal Law, Criminal Processes, and Criminal Process and Human Rights.

Professor Marc Moore is Chair in Corporate/Financial Law. Professor Moore’s research interests are in corporate and financial law. He is particularly interested in exploring the limitations of conventional economic analyses of corporations, labour and financial markets, and the real-world implications of laws and regulations in those fields.

Dr Michael Veale is a Lecturer in Digital Rights and Regulation. Michael's research sits at the intersections of emerging digital technologies, Internet and data law, technology policy and human–computer interaction. His work has examined areas such as how the law applies to machine learning techniques, how data protection law copes with new data processing practices, and the use and limitations of data rights.

We hope that you will join us in extending a warm welcome to all new academic staff.
