Research

Sarah’s research interests cross over all aspects of national water law: legal frameworks for water resources management, water rights and abstractions, water quality and pollution control; and the regulation of water services. She has a special interest in water law reform. She works closely with scientists and policymakers, looking at the linkages between science, policy and law.

Sarah was a member of the Customer Forum, a new initiative in Scotland designed to better represent the consumers in the price setting process for water and sewerage services. She was a member of the Irish Government's Expert Commission on water. She has been involved in several funded projects for Scottish Government related to the regulation of water services, including rural supply, source protection and valuing water, as well as projects funded by the EU on water resource management.
