Robyn Trigg is a DPhil candidate at Magdalen College and was awarded the Leon E and Iris L Beghian Oxford Graduate Scholarship to undertake her research.  Robyn's doctoral work is in the field of animal law and looks at the human / animal divide and the use of animals by humans.  She is particularly interested in the use of animals in scientific experiments and the patent morality provisions in the context of patenting genetically engineered animals.

Prior to coming to Oxford, Robyn practised as an intellectual property litigation solicitor (with a focus on life sciences patent litigation) at Allen & Overy LLP in London.  Robyn undertook her undergraduate law degree at the University of Warwick.
