Brief Bio

Dr Leslie-Anne Duvic-Paoli is a Lecturer at The Dickson Poon School of Law. Before joining King’s College London in August 2017, she was Philomathia Post-doctoral Research Associate in the Department of Land Economy at the University of Cambridge. Leslie-Anne is a public international lawyer, with expertise in international environmental law. She is particularly interested in understanding the nature and content of its principles: her monograph, entitled The Prevention Principle in International Environmental Law, is forthcoming with Cambridge University Press.

Leslie-Anne’s research also looks at the energy transition to a low-carbon economy from an international and comparative law perspective. One aspect of her research concentrates on the externalities of the energy transition, as she seeks to clarify the interactions between international environmental and energy law. She is also committed to highlighting the role of law in the design of energy policies, including the importance of participatory mechanisms to build inclusive energy systems.

Leslie-Anne is a Fellow of the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance (C-EENRG), and Assistant Editor for the Transnational Environmental Law journal (CUP). She is the Project Leader of the Platform on International Energy Governance, a network of excellence that fosters the conduct of research in unexplored areas of international energy governance.

Leslie-Anne holds Master’s degrees in international relations / political science from Sciences Po Paris and in public law from the University of Panthéon-Sorbonne, and a PhD (summa cum laude) in international law from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva.
