Charlotte O’Brien

University of York

Charlotte joined York Law School in 2009, having completed an AHRC funded PhD at the University of Liverpool and taken part in two research projects on retirement migration funded by the Spanish Ministry for Employment & Social Affairs and Age Concern. These looked at the access to welfare services for post-retirement EU migrants.

Prior to the PhD, she completed the LLM in Law at the University of Leeds, where she undertook research assistance work on the EU constitutional treaty. Her first degree was Social & Political Sciences, at the University of Cambridge. As a graduate she had volunteered and been employed with different Citizens Advice offices, and has since integrated case work and supervision into both research and teaching.
