Ms Sophie Westenra

Stipendiary Lecturer in Law


Returning to the college at which I read for the BCL, I give tutorials for St John’s in Trusts. I have taught Trusts for a number of years at several other Oxford colleges and have been a Visiting Lecturer in Trusts at King’s College London. I also continue to teach Trusts, EU, Administrative, and Constitutional Law at Keble College, Oxford, as the Harris Lecturer in Public Law.

Research Interests

My current research interests centre on the private-public law divide. I have also published in the field of immigration law, including, Bowling, B and Westenra, S. (2018) ‘Racism, Immigration and Policing’, in Race, Criminal Justice and Migration Control: Enforcing the Boundaries of Belonging, Oxford: OUP, and Bowling, B and Westenra, S. (2018) ‘“A really hostile environment”: adiaphorization, global policing and the crimmigration control system’, Theoretical Criminology.
