Prof. Tamara Hervey

Back to staff list

Tamara studied at Glasgow and Sheffield, and held academic posts at Durham, Manchester and Nottingham Law Schools, before joining Sheffield in 2007. She enjoys integrating research with teaching and learning, and one of the things she particularly likes about being a Professor is working with students on research projects (both hers and theirs).

Tamara’s main research interests are in the field of European Union social and constitutional law, in particular its application in health fields, social security and welfare, and non-discrimination. She has published on the European Union’s competence in social fields, especially health law; on the regulation of tobacco in the EU context; on European public health law and policy; on the governance of stem cell research in the EU; on EU non-discrimination law and minority rights; and on the ‘right to health’ in European contexts. She is interested in socio-legal theory and method, in particular as applied to the law of the European Union.

Tamara is a member of the Health Law and Policy Research Group, Centre for the Study of Law in Society, Sheffield Centre for International and European Law and Sheffield Institute of Biotechnology Law and Ethics.
