Maynooth University appoints Dr Sinéad Ring as criminology lecturer
Maynooth University Department of Law has announced the appointment of Dr Sinéad Ring as a lecturer in criminology.
She is the second criminology lecturer to join the department this month, following the appointment of Dr Lynsey Black.
Dr Ring joins Maynooth from Kent Law School, where she was a senior lecturer and co-director of graduate studies. She has previously taught lectured law at NUI Galway and University College Cork.
She has held visiting positions at Osgoode Hall’s Institute for Feminist Legal Studies, Harvard Law School, Melbourne Law School and University of Technology, Sydney. Before entering academia, she was a legal researcher at the Law Reform Commission.
Dr Ring’s expertise is in criminal law and evidence, victims’ studies and feminist legal studies. Her research explores legal responses to sexual violence and she is currently working on a monograph, Legal Responses to Historical Child Sexual Abuse, to be published next year by Routledge.
