Sheargold, Elizabeth A. Dr.

Vice-Chancellor's Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Overview


Elizabeth (Liz) Sheargold joined UOW as a postdoctoral research fellow in April 2019. Previously, she was a research fellow with the Global Economic Law Network at Melbourne Law School (University of Melbourne). She completed her PhD at Melbourne Law School, which examined how contemporary treaties concerning international investment sought to protect policy space for states to regulate in the public interest, such as for the protection of public health or the natural environment. Prior to her PhD, Liz completed her LLM at Columbia Law School (Columbia University), focussing on international economic law and environmental law, and was later appointed as the Associate Director of the Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia University. She has taught in both undergraduate and postgraduate law courses, at the University of Melbourne, Monash University and La Trobe University. In addition to her academic experience, Liz has spent several years in legal practice, working in the environment / planning and litigation departments of Allens Arthur Robinson (Melbourne) and as a Legal Advisor to Judge O. Thomas Johnson at the Iran – United States Claims Tribunal (The Hague, Netherlands).
