Jessica is the lead lawyer for the Law Commissions’ automated vehicles review. The review was requested by the UK Government’s Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV). It began in 2018 and is due to report at the end of 2021 with recommendations for legal change establishing a regulatory framework for the safe deployment of automated vehicles on the roads in Great Britain. Jessica’s work on applying laws to AV technologies involves extensive expert and public engagement in the UK and abroad and participating in the UNECE’s working party 1 and its informal group of experts. At the Commission Jessica has previously managed the criminal law team and worked on ride-hailing regulation and consumer protection reform. Before joining the civil service, Jessica was a lecturer in Law at Durham University and had been in private practice at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP in New York and London, specialising in corporate law and intellectual property. She graduated with a BA in Law from Churchill College, Cambridge University and an LL.M. from Harvard Law School.
