Dr Jill Robbie
Dr Frankie McCarthy

I completed my LLB at the University of Glasgow in 2016. Previous to this, I obtained a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics in 1995 at the University of Glasgow and a MBA in 2007 from the University of Strathclyde.

I worked at the University of Glasgow from 2001 to 2014, in the Planning Office, the Faculty of Arts and finally as Head of the Student Lifecycle Support and Development Team.

My research project will analyse how increasing publicity in land registration can be achieved in a manner which respects the privacy and data protection rights of individuals.

My LLM by Research (2016-2017) was funded by the Registers of Scotland.
