Overview (cy)

Dr. Hayley Roberts is an international lawyer with a specialisation in the law of the sea. She completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Wales, Bangor, where she graduated with a LLB (Hons) in Law. She later won two doctoral scholarships to complete a PhD at the same institution, examining the legal protection of underwater cultural heritage in the UK and internationally. Having taught at the School since 2007, she joined as a Lecturer in Public International Law in 2013.

Dr. Roberts’ main research interests are in the areas of the protection of underwater cultural heritage, dispute resolution within the law of the sea, and school admissions for summer-born children. She is a Commissioner for the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments in Wales, and a member of the Wales Observatory on Children’s Rights.

Dr. Roberts is particularly interested in supervising PhDs related to issues of underwater cultural heritage/historic shipwrecks and dispute resolution in public international law (particularly UNCLOS 1982). She is also prepared to consider applications with interesting research proposals relating to public international law or the law of the sea more generally.
