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

I research anti-discrimination laws and their justifying rationales. 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. I am currently working on a monograph examining the morality of age discrimination and how this should guide the application of age discrimination laws to identify unjustified and unlawful age discrimination. I am also researching hate crime laws and whether they should be expanded to include additional identity characteristics to offer wider scope of protection. 

Office Hours: My office hours are 2 to 3pm on Thursdays and 9 to 10am on Fridays of term time. If you cannot meet during the listed dates or times, please email me directly and we can organise a mutually convinient time to meet.
