Charlotte Mills

BA (Sheffield), LLM (Leicester)

Charlotte Mills joined the University of Leicester as a Graduate Teaching Assistant in September 2017. She obtained an undergraduate degree in East Asian Studies from the University of Sheffield in 2012, and an LLM in International Law from the University of Leicester in 2015.

Research Interests

Charlotte’s research interests lie in the field of public international law, specifically human rights, transitional justice and gender. Her thesis examines, from a feminist perspective, the construction and impact of the ‘ideal’ sexual violence victim within South Korean transitional justice using comfort women, the Jeju massacre and Gwangju democratic uprising as case studies.

Charlotte also researches into legal education and is currently working on a project, alongside fellow GTAs Victoria Ball and Arwen Joyce, examining undergraduate law students’ perceptions of PhD tutors. The project was awarded the Chris Gale Memorial Prize for best-joint paper at the Association of Law Teachers’ annual conference in 2019 and has received funding from the ALT.
