Jaime joined Essex Law School as a lecturer in September 2017, having previously taught at the University of Birmingham and UCL.
Jaime's work focuses on healthcare law and ethics. She is particularly interested in the legal regulation of healthcare and the relationship between law and health expertise. Jaime's interests in healthcare law span a range of areas including mental capacity, clinical negligence, reproduction, new technologies and professional regulation. Jaime also researches the intersection between mental capacity and adult safeguarding law, more specifically legal responses to domestic abuse of disabled adults. Jaime has used socio-legal methods and vulnerability theory to explore these areas.
