Dr Maebh Harding


Dr Maebh Harding is Assistant Professor in Family and Child Law at UCD Sutherland School of Law. She is a recent hire at UCD after 13 years in the UK, most recently as Associate Professor at Warwick Law School. 

Maebh’s research combines a critical feminist perspective with empirical, historical and doctrinal rigour to challenge legal regulation of family life. She takes particular interest, not only in law, but in how family justice systems actually work. Her work is interdisciplinary in nature, crossing different legal and methodological fields and makes significant contributions to the areas of Family Law, Children’s Rights, Private International Law, Legal History, Law and Religion and Law and Gender.
