In 2005, she spent six months on a research sabbatical at the Innocence Project New Orleans, before joining the Law School at Manchester. She has been a visiting scholar at the University of Melbourne, Queen's University Belfast (both 2009) and Fordham University Law School (2012).
She has been an executive member of the Socio-Legal Studies Association, organising its 2008 Annual Conference. She was a member of the Independent Monitoring Board and has been a Council of Europe Expert, delivering training on human rights for judge candidates in Azerbaijan.
