Professor Jurgita Malinauskaite was appointed as a Divisional Lead for Private and Commercial Law at Brunel Law School in September 2021. She is the first women to be appointed to this role since the Law School became a self-standing Department in August 2017. This is in line with our Athena Swan tasks to improve women representation at managerial level.
Professor Malinauskaite noted:
“I am delighted to be appointed to this position. I will bring my past knowledge and experience as the former Lead of Athena Swan and the Aurora Champion to the division (and the department) supporting staff in their professional development and career progression. I am fully committed and passionate about making a positive difference in people's lives ensuring that our staff and students feel they belong to the Brunel community”.
