New visitor at iCourts - Noreen O'Meara

Noreen O’Meara is a lecturer in law at the University of Surrey, UK, and holds degrees from Cambridge University, UCL and Queen Mary, University of London.  She previously worked as a Research Fellow in European Law at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL), and as Middle Temple’s Hon Sir Peter Bristow Scholar at the European Commission and Court of Justice.  Her research interests lie in Public Law in a broad sense, cross-cutting Constitutional law, EU Public Law, and European Human Rights Law.  Currently on research leave, she is a Visiting Fellow at the Institute of European and Comparative Law (IECL), University of Oxford. 

The primary focus of her current research is analysis of the evolving relationships between national courts and the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) and European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).  Current research papers focus on reform of the European Court of Human Rights via Protocols 15 and 16 ECHR; fundamental rights in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice; the theme of extra-judicial dialogue and the UK Supreme Court; and on the roles of judicial networks in the European legal space.  During her iCourts visit in May-June 2015, she will be working and presenting on the latter research themes, which examine the roles and impact of extra-judicial dialogue and judicial networks in the European legal arena.
