Lucy Moxham joined the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law at BIICL in January 2012. She is a Senior Research Fellow in the Rule of Law, and her research interests cover international human rights law, European and UK human rights law, and the Rule of Law.
Lucy is leading the second phase of the Bingham Centre's Rule of Law Monitoring of Legislation project 2023-25, including its work as Secretariat for the All-Party Parliamentary Group on the Rule of Law. She is also project supervisor for the Independent Commission on UK Public Health Emergency Powers, for which the Bingham Centre provides research and operational support, and acts as Secretariat.
At the Bingham Centre, Lucy has worked extensively on Rule of Law and human rights issues, including as part of the RECONNECT research project on 'Reconciling Europe with its Citizens through Democracy and the Rule of Law', which received funding from the EU's Horizon 2020 Research & Innovation programme. Other recent projects have included a global survey on national implementation of human rights with partners to understand the systems and processes that States have put in place to implement, report and follow-up on their international human rights commitments.
Lucy holds a MA Law Degree (first class honours) from the University of Cambridge and a BCL Master's Degree from the University of Oxford. Lucy completed the Legal Practice Course at Nottingham Law School and a two-year training contract at Clifford Chance LLP, including time on secondment to the human rights organisation Liberty. She is not currently practising as a solicitor.
Prior to joining the Bingham Centre, Lucy worked for several years at the human rights organisation REDRESS on projects relating to the prohibition of torture and the right to a remedy and reparation at national, regional and international levels. She has also worked and volunteered with a range of other NGOs in this field and has spent time as a pro bono Centre Fellow at the Centre for Human Rights & Global Justice at New York University.
