Sarah Marsden is a PhD candidate in the Faculty of Law at the Unversity of British Columbia. Her studies focus on precarious labour migration in Canada and as a global phenomenon, drawing on scholarship from multiple disciplines. She is interested in documenting the impact of legal regulatory structures on precarious migrants, particularly with regard to rights and membership in the host state.
Sarah obtained her LL.B. and LL.M from the University of Victoria, and subsequently spent time working as a judicial clerk for the Federal Court of Canada, and as a refugee and immigration lawyer in Vancouver, British Columbia. Most recently, she has been involved in starting and supervising a refugee and immigration clinic for low-income clients through UBC’s Law Students Legal Advice Program.
