Kelley Moult

Profile

Dr. Kelley Moult is the Director of the Centre for Law and Society and is a Senior Researcher and a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Public Law. Kelley holds a PhD from American University in Washington, DC; an MA in Criminal Justice from George Washington University; and a B.Soc Sci and Honours degree in Criminology – both from the University of Cape Town. Kelley has 15 years’ experience on working on gender, law reform and implementation, and a number of the projects that she has worked on are well-cited and considered foundational studies in the literature on gender-based violence policy implementation in South Africa. Kelley was a Fulbright Fellow (2004-2006), was the recipient of the American University School of Public Affairs Award for Outstanding Scholarship at the Graduate Level in 2010 for her dissertation research on domestic violence court clerks, discretion and the administration of justice. Her recent research projects include regionally-focused projects on child marriage, sexual health and reproductive rights in Southern Africa, as well as the intersection of Western and traditional justice systems in terms of gender-based violence. Kelley’s teaching in the Faculty is strongly focused on bringing current research into the classroom, and on fostering new generations of socio-legal scholars. She was instrumental in designing the Law in Action course for LLM/MPhil and PhD students in the faculty (which she co-teaches with Elrena van der Spuy and Julie Berg), and she acts as the Methods Advisor to students and staff who undertake empirical research.
