About Emma Franck-Gwinnell

I graduated from Durham University in July 2019. I completed my Undergraduate Scholarship in 2018; my research focused on business' responsibilities to stop modern slavery in their supply chains, and the impact that the law can have on this. Since February 2020, I've been studying the Legal Practice Course in London, and will be joining Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP as a Trainee Solicitor in August 2020. I am also one of the Co-Presidents of the Laidlaw Alumni Society. I'm passionate about entrepreneurialism, women into business, sustainable business and ending slavery in supply chains.

Emma Franck-Gwinnell - Laidlaw poster

Many jurisdictions have introduced modern slavery "transparency" legislation, requiring organisations to disclose steps they are taking to fight slavery in their supply chains. However, most such legislation is ineffective. My research asked why this is so, and how the legislation can be improved.
