LSE CLCJT Forum 17 February - Galia Schneebaum
Tuesday, 11th February 2020
Our speaker is Dr Galia Schneebaum, who will present a paper titled ‘What is Wrong with Spousal Abuse, and Why Its Criminalization (As Such) Might Not Be Right’. The paper is attached to this email.
The seminar will take place on Monday 17 February 2020 at 18.00 in room 1.15, first floor, New Academic Building (notice the change of room from our usual venue).
Galia is an Assistant Professor of Law at the Harry Radzyner Law School, IDC Herzliya. She completed her Ph.D. at Tel-Aviv University, was a visiting scholar at the University of Toronto, and a Post-Doctoral fellow at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Galia's research is at the intersection of criminal law, political, and sociological theory. Her research interests include criminalization theory, and the legal conceptions of abuse of power, abuse of authority and abuse of office - which she studies drawing on the Weberian theory of authority. Her previous work focused on the offenses of sexual abuse and sexual harassment, and her current research projects include the study of new regulations on workplace bullying (i.e,, non-sexual harassment), offenses of spousal abuse, and the legal regulation of boycotting. Galia organizes the Criminal Law in Action forum, and co-organizes the Law and Humanities researchers' workshop at IDC.

Anxiety & Me
Wednesday, 22nd January 2020
'My background is that I studied at BPP Holborn for the LPC then trained and qualified with Eversheds Sutherland as a real estate solicitor. I left in 2009 to have babies and was just thinking of returning when I suffered a massive brain haemorrhage in 2013. I am only now recovered enough to think about anything else other than my own health. I have realised that no one really talks about having anxiety, indeed I wouldn’t have before but I really feel like mine is totally understandable so I feel fine discussing it. I have also written a blog about ‘Disability discrimination... strikes again’.
Adequate Insurance for lawyers
Wednesday, 27th March 2019
My background is that I studied at BPP Holborn for the LPC then trained and qualified with Eversheds Sutherland as a real estate solicitor. I left in 2009 to have babies and was just thinking of returning when I suffered a massive brain haemorrhage in 2013. I am only now recovered enough to think about anything else other than my own health.
I really think young lawyers should be warned to put their finances in order early on - being disabled is ridiculously hard and expensive. What happened to me should be widely known and should act as a cautionary example. I feel I have a responsibility to encourage people to think about their own insurance and I would really urge your Inn to educate it's lawyers about the benefits.
I was really lucky I had my own critical illness cover which luckily paid out but I understand not everyone. I understand adequate insurance is even more important when you are self-employed (we don't know what is round the corner- I certainly didn't.)
The importance of having proper insurance can't be overstated. For me, having personal insurance has meant I have a lovely house which doesn’t resemble hospital and all the speech therapy and physio I need.
I have a little blog ( to keep me busy as I can't work) I hope it might be of interest:
