Teaching Interests

Bríd has over ten years' experience of teaching international law. At Maynooth, she teaches humanitarian law at postgraduate level and international human rights law at undergraduate level. She has also taught the law of international organisations, the politics of international law, introduction to international law, international law mooting, humanitarian law, human rights law, and refugee law at universities all over the world, including the University of Oxford, University of Cyprus, Masaryk University, University of Helsinki, University of Sheffield, and Shandong University China. Bríd's teaching engages significantly with active learning methods, such as debates, moot courts, and mock UN General Assembly sessions. 

Bríd won two of the University of Sheffield's top teaching awards - The Students' Union Employability Award (2015) and the Faculty of Social Sciences' 'Outstanding Practice in Teaching and Learning' award (2017). Her students nominated her for a further two University-level and three national-level teaching awards. Bríd has coached four moot court teams which won the UK national championships in their respective competitions (Jessup 2014, Telders 2015, Telders 2017, and European Human Rights Moot Court 2018). Most of these teams also finished in the top handful of teams worldwide in the international finals of their respective competitions.

Bríd also has significant experience supervising and examining PhD theses. She is very open to being contacted by applicants wishing to pursue a PhD project in international law, forced migration, and human rights.
