Mary Guy, PhD Student
Following several years working as a translator and policy advisor in the Civil Service, Mary completed the Graduate Diploma in Law (College of Law Birmingham) and the Legal Practice Course (UWE) (both awarded with Commendation). She also holds an LLM in International Competition Law and Policy from UEA (awarded with Distinction).
Mary's main area of research examines the recent reforms of the healthcare systems in England and The Netherlands and how different areas of law underpin these. Her wider research interests include the SGEI exception under Art. 106(2) TFEU and the identity and role of the "consumer" in EU law.
Provisional PhD title: 'Healthcare competition in Bismarck and Beveridge health systems: the use and interaction of competition law, public procurement rules, merger control and economic regulation in the Dutch and English healthcare sectors.'
Since starting her PhD in October 2012, Mary has presented her research both internally at UEA and externally at the British Association for Comparative Law (BACL) Postgraduate Workshop 2013, the inaugural workshop of the Health Law and Policy Research Group at Sheffield University and the Dutch healthcare regulator (NZa) in Utrecht.
