Laura Davies is a legal scholar with a broad interest in legal philosophy, ethical legal decision-making, and the changing role of the judge.

After finishing the Legal Research Master at Utrecht University (cum laude) she now works as a PhD candidate and teacher at the legal philosophy faculty of the Radboud University. Her PhD-research is about the legitimacy of the judge. In order to unravel this complex and elusive concept, she looks at the different perspectives on legal legitimacy that have been dominant in the Netherlands over the past century. By analyzing how these perspectives interrelate, she aims to reach a more integral and substantive understanding of this concept that can help to improve legal legitimacy in a more structural way.
