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 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 and work examining whether courts and tribunals should treat age discrimination as less serious than paradigm forms of discrimination. Also, I have an article in the Oxford Journal of Legal Studies arguing for extending hate crime laws to protect age groups

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 (pre order here).
