4-6 November 2022
Rebecca first qualified as a lawyer in Australia in 2014 and recently cross qualified as a solicitor in the UK. She has a background in law enforcement and policy before coming to the law and now practices in the area of healthcare regulation. Rebecca works in-house for an oversight body in London advising on prospective appeals and has previously worked as a tribunal advocate.
Whilst regulation is the day job, for many years Rebecca has taken an interest in space law and policy and undertaken self study in this area. Space law is a very specialist area and spans a range of fields, such as public international law and commerce. Rebecca enjoys the type of law which has an interplay with ethics where the answers may not always be clear cut. There are many unanswered questions in the field which makes space law such a stimulating and challenging area for discussion.
The law aside, Rebecca is originally from Manchester and has also spent time living in Germany and Australia. She now calls the buzzing district of Brixton home and can often be found swimming in the cold waters of the local lido.
