Emily Hancox is a lecturer in law at the University of Bristol.

Her research interests lie in the field of constitutional law and, in particular, on questions of norm inter-relationship. At present, Emily has two ongoing research projects. The first focuses on questions relating to both when and how courts prioritise (or entrench) particular legislative measures or values within legal systems and the implications that flow from this. The second research project focuses on the status of retained EU law in the UK after Brexit.

Emily has taught public law and EU law at the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Edinburgh, and Bristol.
