Dr Carrie Bradshaw


I joined the School of Law in 2018. Prior to this I was a Lecturer in Law, University of York (2013-18) and Teaching Fellow and Research Student, UCL (2010-13).

Research interests

My current research examines food waste as a distinct legal and policy problem.  My published work explores how waste law adds to the problem of food waste, and I am currently researching the legal and policy framing of food waste.  In 2018, I am an ESRC Parliamentary Academic Fellow, working with the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) to support scrutiny of Government interventions to manage food waste in the context of broader food security challenges, particularly against the backdrop of the UK’s forthcoming departure from the EU.  Find out more.

I’m also interested in the relationship between environmental law, company law and regulation. I explore this in my forthcoming monograph, Corporations, Responsibility and the Environment (Hart Publishing).  I have a general research background in environmental law, including waste, regulatory enforcement, climate change (especially mitigation), environmental liability and environmental courts / tribunals.  I also retain research interests in tort, particularly the relationship between tortious liability and corporate responsibility.
