Dr. Tracey Elliott is a lecturer in health care law at Leicester Law School. She frequently gives lectures to the legal and medical professions and assists with advocacy training at Gray’s Inn. Before lecturing, Tracey was called to the Bar (1986) and practised as a full-time barrister specialising in criminal litigation and advisory work for both the prosecution and the defence.
In addition, Tracey has also worked in Poland, lecturing to Polish judges, prosecutors and Ministry of Justice officials on the UK legal system. Her PhD thesis examined the development and use of the justification of necessity in medical law. Tracey’s current research projects relate to the limits of consent and the treatment and care of vulnerable adults and those who lack capacity (particularly the use of the inherent jurisdiction and the law and practice in relation to Lasting Powers of Attorney).
