The School of Law is delighted to announce that Stella Coyle has successfully completed her PhD.

Stella was awarded her LLB from University College London in 1995. Her final year dissertation focused on sadomasochism and the criminal law in the wake of R v Brown, and challenged the law’s double standards with regard to consent to harm.

Stella returned to study following a varied career in the education sector and obtained her LLM in Law and Society from Keele University in 2012. Her LLM dissertation examined contemporary conflicts between religion and sexual orientation in equality law, where the manifestation of conservative religious belief collides with the extension of rights for LGBT people.

Stella's PhD thesis builds on the themes introduced in her LLM dissertation.
