Dr Lucy-Ann Buckley BCL; LLM(NUI); BCL(Oxon); PhD; Solicitor
| Dr Lucy-Ann Buckley has been a staff member at NUI Galway since 1999. Her original BCL from University College Cork was followed by a research LLM in the law of sexual harassment; she was subsequently awarded a second master’s degree of BCL by the University of Oxford and a doctorate by Trinity College, Dublin. Her doctoral thesis, for which she conducted wide-ranging interviews with legal practitioners and gathered significant original case data for analysis, focused on financial provision on marital breakdown in Ireland. Dr Buckley is also a qualified solicitor and holds a Diploma in Irish from NUI Galway. Prior to taking up her current position in the School of Law, she lectured in law at the University of Warwick and the University of Limerick.
Dr Buckley specialises in gender equality issues, particularly with reference to matrimonial property, but including labour law, discrimination law and family law generally. She is a project leader of Gender ARC (Advanced Research Consortium on Gender, Culture and the Knowledge Society) and is also a member of the Gender and Public Policy Cluster at the Whitaker Institute. Dr Buckley's current research focuses on financial provision on marital breakdown, with particular emphasis on the recognition of caring work and contributions to family life. She is also keenly interested in equality law, prenuptial and other spousal agreements, and in theories of autonomy. She has a particular interest in socio-legal and empirical work.
Dr Buckley welcomes inquiries from potential doctoral students in relation to equality law and policy (including but not limited to gender issues), family law, labour law, property law, equity and trusts.
