About me

Amy Man studied at the University of the West of England (UWE) for her BA(Hons) in Business and Law, which was followed by an LLM in International Commercial Law from the University of Birmingham. 

Following her studies, Amy left academia to work as a Legal Researcher for the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre (an NGO based in London) advising companies on their human rights responsibilities. Amy returned back to the South-West to continue advising companies of their human rights risk as a Human Rights and Labour Standards Analyst for Verisk Maplecroft (a risk analysis company based in Bath).


During this time, Amy returned to UWE as a Research Assistance for the 'Business in Society' Project. She has also worked as an independent consultant on business and human rights and undertaken further research into international trade policies and human rights at the University of Warwick.

Amy returned to UWE to undertake her doctorate. Her teaching interests lie in areas of International Economic Law on the postgraduate level, particularly looking at the intersectionality between trade, investment and development. On the postgraduate programme, Amy is the Module Leader for Globalisation and the Law. On the undergraduate programme, Amy teaches on the  Law of Contract module; she is also Joint Module Leader and teaches on the Law of Torts module.

Amy's research examines international investment agreements in the context of development. Amy is particularly interested in China's approach to international investment law and how that affects its relationship with African States, especially in the wider context of development.

Area of expertise
