PhD Researcher in Socio-Legal Studies (ESRC +3)
Law School, University of Bristol
Start date: September 2017
Research topic: Emotional readiness to negotiate in family law proceedings
Emotional readiness to negotiate has been recognised as an important factor in parties’ ability to settle without using contested litigation. I am researching the emotional support given by solicitors to their clients to find out what non-legal support is currently available, and also what sorts of emotional support clients find helpful.
