Leading scholar joins Queen's School of Law
Queen's University is to add an internationally recognised scholar to its School of Law.
Professor Christopher McCrudden has joined Queen's from the University of Oxford, where he had been awarded his doctorate and had been fellow and tutor in law since 1980.
Belfast-born and a Queen's graduate, the international equality expert will take up the post of professor of human rights and equality law. Queen's School of Law is highly regarded and was ranked joint seventh out of 67 UK law schools.
Head of the School of Law, Professor Colin Harvey, said: "This is a warm welcome home to a graduate of Queen's who, through decades of research, is recognised internationally as a world-leading scholar."
As a fellow of the British Academy, Professor McCrudden will be leading the way on the University's widely recognised work on human rights and equality law.
Speaking about his new position, he expressed his happiness about being able to return to his home city. "I am absolutely delighted to be rejoining Queen's at this exciting time. I am looking forward to working alongside its exciting and vibrant intellectual community," he said.
