Maria Fletcher joined the School of Law in 2000 as a Teaching Assistant in European Law and subsequently became a Lecturer (June 2002) and then Senior Lecturer (September 2008) in European Law. She teaches on EU law-related courses at both under-graduate and post-graduate level. Ms Fletcher is the School of Law Employability Officer and she is on the Steering Group of the University of Glasgow's Refugee Asylum and Migration Network (GRAMNet) - www.glasgow.ac.uk/gramnet
Maria’s research interests lie broadly in the field of European Union law. More specifically, her work examines the constitutional dimensions of the EU’s 'Area of Freedom, Security and Justice' (AFSJ) and the subject areas that fall under this heading - these include EU criminal law and policy and EU immigration and asylum law and policy. She has recently concluded a Nuffield-funded research project in collaboration with Professor Jo Shaw, University of Edinburgh, exploring the friction and overlap between EU free movement law and UK immigration law.
