Lindsey joined the Law School as a Lecturer in September 2017, after previously holding a lectureship at Royal Holloway, University of London.  Her first degree was in Law, also at Bristol, and post-PhD she worked for a time as a civil servant doing strategic policy in relation to defence and national security on Whitehall. 

Lindsey’s research interests are highly inter-disciplinary and connected by her fascination with the relationship between law and society.  Her research at present focuses on two main areas; the first of these draws on her experience in the civil service to examine UK terrorism law and policy, including the controversial counter-radicalisation 'Prevent' strategy.  The second builds on on her doctoral work to explore the phenomenon of trial by ordeal from its earliest appearances in the ancient Near East to the present day through legal history, legal anthropology, and jurisprudence.  

At Bristol she teaches, and has taught, Land Law, Trusts and Jurisprudence.
