Dr Sarah Munro is a solicitor in Livingstone Brown’s Criminal Litigation
& Inquiries Practice Area Unit, working in the Private Crime team. She is based at the Glasgow City office.
Sarah joined the firm in 2020, having completed her traineeship at a leading Edinburgh-based, medium-sized law firm that included both contentious and non-contentious work.
Prior to entering practice, Sarah spent twelve years in academia. She is a graduate of the University of Glasgow where she obtained her Bachelor of Laws (with Honours) and Diploma in Professional Legal Practice (with Merit), latterly winning the Thomas Shanks Prize in Commercial Awareness. Sarah spent eighteen months living in the Netherlands, where she studied for her Masters in Law (Cum Laude) at Leiden University and where she interned in the Trial Chamber of the Special Court for Sierra Leone, contributing towards the judgment that found former Liberian President, Charles Taylor, guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity: the first former head of state to be convicted by an international tribunal since the Nuremberg trials after World War II. In 2018, Sarah successfully defended her doctoral thesis at the University of Lincoln on the topic of human rights under European Union law. She was employed by the University as a lecturer in European Union law.
Sarah is interested in politics and human rights and in her spare time enjoys raising her young family.
