Dr Natalie Sedacca
Lecturer in Law
Natalie is a Lecturer in Law (Education and Research). She joined Exeter Law School in January 2021 and currently teaches Employment, Tort and Constitutional & Administrative Law.
Natalie recently completed her PhD at University College London (UCL). Her doctoral research analyses the legal position of domestic workers and their frequent exclusion from protective labour law legislation, criticising this exclusion on the basis of human rights standards. Her PhD includes case studies on Chile and the UK with empirical work in each.
Prior to joining Exeter, Natalie was a Teaching Fellow at UCL from 2018 to 2020, teaching Tort and Employment Law. In 2020 Natalie convened a course on Labour Law and Human Rights at Queen Mary University of London.
Natalie is a trustee for the migrant domestic worker NGO Kalayaan, and is on the Executive Commmittee of Lawyers for Palestinian Human Rights. She is also the joint convenor for the Labour Law section of the Society of Legal Scholars, and is a member of the Socio-Legal Studies Association.
Before entering academia, Natalie spent nine years in legal practice (two years in training and seven years as a qualified solicitor) specialising in claims against the police and public authorities.
