Dr Lilian Moncrieff
- Lecturer (School of Law)
Lilian has law degrees from Edinburgh University (LLB Honours), London School of Economics (LLM) and University of Glasgow (PHD).
She holds academic prizes and scholarships from all three institutions, including the Lord Cooper Memorial Prize (Edinburgh), the Derby-Bryce Prize in Law (University of London) and the Adam Smith Research Foundation Doctoral Scholarship (Glasgow).
Prior to her PhD, Lilian worked as Analyst in the public sector, and as an Analyst and Associate in the Legal Department at Goldman Sachs International (GSI).
Lilian is a legal theorist and governance scholar.
Lilian's research uses legal-theoretical and interdisciplinary research methods to study the global governance of private actors, specifically companies and investors.
Lilian is interested in the design of domestic, regional, and international institutions for the ‘responsibilisation’ and ‘ecologisation’ of corporate actors, issues commonly thematised as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Corporate Environmental Responsibility (CER).
Lilian's research is grounded in her expertise of corporate law, governance, and wider sources of accountability (private law, human rights). She uses theory, history, and interdisciplinary methods to develop a 'societal' perspective on companies, and to understand and advance perspectives on the long-term and community outcomes of corporate actions.
