LEGS, or "Law-Engaged Graduate Students," meets during the academic year to discuss a work in progress by one of our Graduate Associates. Academic papers, dissertation proposals, and dissertation chapters have been presented at these meetings, to an audience of fellow graduate students.

She earned a B.A. in Jurisprudence from University College, Oxford in 2010, and a B.A. in History from McGill University.  Evans works on criminal law in Britain and its empire, with a particular interest in how law intersected with medicine, anthropology, and epistemology in colonial courtrooms.
