About

Dr Wade’s activities currently focus on European criminal law and criminal justice as well as prosecutors and terrorism. She has provided the expert advice to the German Federal and State Committee of Data Protection Commissioners, the Rule of Law Delegation of the OSCE Spillover Mission to Skopje, the international prosecutor’s office of the ECCC, the UNDP’s POGAR conference, the President of the German Prosecutor-Generals’ working group and the Dutch Ministry of Justice. She also works as a member of the legal expert advisory board of the NGO Fair Trials International and a criminal justice expert for the European Commission.

Feedback and office hours

My feedback and office hours for summer term time 2014 are as follows:

Mondays 11:30 - 13:30

 

Please note that week 1 is exceptional as it is the only week remaining for preparation for the counter-terrorism exam. As already agreed with several of you I am therefore holding office hours as follows:

 Tomorrow/Tuesday 11:30-13:30

As Monday next week is a bank holiday, I will also be holding a feedback session on Thursday at the same time to ensure you can consult me in good time for the exam.

Please feel free to pop in without an appointment during these times or to contact me via email should that not be possible.
