School of Law Gender Principles


As part of the School of Law’s ongoing Athena SWAN work, the School’s SWAN Champion and Self-Assessment Team have developed a set of Gender Principles

These principles outline the School’s overarching commitment to equality and diversity in relation to gender. They act as a guide for all teaching, research and administrative activity in the School and for the securing of a workplace which reflects commitment to the Athena SWAN Charter. 

SWAN Champion, Dr Kathryn McNeilly, comments that 'the principles act as a guide informing every aspect of life in the School and make visible the value placed on gender equality and inclusivity in the daily activities of staff and students.'

The principles were launched at the School’s International Women’s Day celebration on 9th March 2018 with Justice Siobhan Keegan of the Northern Ireland High Court and Professor Yvonne Galligan of Queen’s Gender Initiative, and can be viewed here: Gender Principles.
