Marie-Andrée Jacob is Professor of Law at Keele University. Her socio-legal work is strongly interdisciplinary, drawing on ethnographic and more recently on archival methods.  She is generally interested in activities that sit on the border between legality and illegality.  In 2010 she received the Article Prize of the Socio-Legal Studies Association for ‘The Shared History’: unknotting fictive kinship and legal process’ (Law & Society Review). Her book Matching Organs with Donors was published in 2012 by the University of Pennsylvania Press.  Her work has been supported by various bodies including the British Academy, Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and Leverhulme Trust.

As part of her current research on the category of research integrity, Marie explores modern patterns in the documentation of research regulation and conducts ethnographic observations in the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), an international charity assisting editors and publishers to handle allegations of research misconduct.  In 2016-8, she will be working on a Leverhulme Research Fellowship, ‘Figuring ‘bad apples’: legal-bureaucratic assemblages of research misconduct, 1850-1990.’

Marie is generally interested in how law, experts and society interact in generating controversies and consensus on issues pertaining to modern medicine. Her research and teaching interests include: legal ethnography; kinship, bureaucracies, gift and exchange; medical law; law science and society; research ethics and governance, publication ethics, and scientific conduct and misconduct.

She is happy to supervise work in these areas.
