Dr Stuart Goosey


I joined the University of Leeds as a Lecturer in Law in 2019 having previously taught at Durham University and Queen Mary, University of London. I gained my LLB at University College London (2007-2010) (first class), and a Bachelor of Civil Law at Wolfson College, Oxford (2012-2013) and PhD (2013-2017) at Queen Mary, University of London.

Research interests

My main research interest is age equality and the law. I am interested in examining how the law should address age discrimination and unjust inequality between age groups. My publications include work on the justifiability of judicial retirement ages (link) and work examining whether courts and tribunals should treat age discrimination as less serious than paradigm forms of discrimination (link).

I have a forthcoming monograph with Hart Publishing examining the morality of age discrimination and how this should guide the application of age discrimination laws to identify unjustified and unlawful age discrimination (link). I am also researching hate crime laws and whether they should be expanded to include additional identity characteristics to offer wider scope of protection.
