About Emma Franck-Gwinnell (she/her)

I am one of the Co-Presidents of the Laidlaw Alumni Society - please get in touch if you're interested in organising any events or initiatives with the Society, including through the Career Panel Series. I'm passionate about entrepreneurialism, women into business, sustainable and innovative business and ending slavery in supply chains. 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 graduated from Durham University in July 2019. I completed my Undergraduate Scholarship in 2018; my research focused on legislation which requires organisations to disclose the efforts they are making to fight modern slavery in their supply chains, and whether this legislation is effective. Spoiler alert: it's not! I grew up in Norway and the UK, and spent two years studying at Li Po Chun UWC in Hong Kong prior to my Bachelors degree in the UK.

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.
