Dr Stephanie Dropuljic



I joined the University of Exeter in September 2020 as a Lecturer in Law (Education and Research). I am the convenor for criminal evidence and teach criminal law. Prior to joining Exeter, I was a teaching assistant and completed my doctoral studies at the University of Aberdeen. 

My doctoral thesis reconstructed the procedural and administrative history of Scotland's justiciary court from 1580-1650 with special reference to actions for homicide. 

My research interests are in criminal law and evidence, particularly legal history. I am interested in the development of criminal law doctrines; gender and the law; law reform in evidence and procedure; as well as interdisciplinary and comparative work in criminal law and evidence.  

I have published on the role of women in raising criminal actions, elections and governance in early modern Scotland, and on the classificatory rules regarding homicide. 

I would be happy to supervise topics on aspect's relating to criminal law and evidence. Interested students should contact me. 

For any student wishing to make an appointment, you can email me at
