Miranda Rushton

"After completing my LLM in public international law, I worked as a research intern on the Public International Law Programme at the Institute from October to December 2010.

During my time at the Institute I worked on one substantive project. The Institute was commissioned by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to conduct research on the duties and powers of British consular staff. I worked under the supervision of Jill Barrett, Senior Research Fellow for Public International Law, and former FCO Legal Counsellor, in carrying out this research alongside one other researcher. From day one I was made to feel like part of the team and attended and participated in internal discussions as well as meetings at the FCO with legal advisers and Consular Directorate.
