Dr Chloe Holloway is a Teaching Associate in the School of Law. She teaches Criminal Law and Introduction to Law and Legal Theory. Dr Holloway has also taught Mental Health Law and Policy. She previously graduated from the University with a first-class honors in BA Law with American Law and a distinction in MA Socio-Legal and Criminological Research Methods.
In 2018, Dr Holloway completed her PhD thesis titled 'Facilitating Access to Justice: Exploring the Experiences of Autistic Individuals Arrested and Detained in Police Custody'. This examined the difficulties that might be experienced by autistic individuals in police custody and the support they may require to enable them to participate in the police custody process effectively. She then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the School of Psychology where she established the Nottinghamshire Autism Police Partnership ('NAPP') to help identify ways to improve the support of autistic people in police custody. During the fellowship, she worked with the NAPP to co-produce an improved autism training package and toolkit for custody staff.
Dr Holloway's research aims to improve the support of autistic individuals in police custody through changes to practice, policy and the custody environment. She regularly works with police forces to deliver autism training for custody staff and offer advice on how they can make their custody suites more 'autism-friendly'. In 2019, she was awarded of the Future Promise award and runner up for the Outstanding Early Career Impact award as part of the ESRC Celebrating Impact Prize in recognition of the impact her research has had on the support of autistic people in police custody. Dr Holloway has just completed a pilot study investigating the need for national autism training for police forces in the UK and is trialing an autism training package to gather feedback on whether it improves custody staff's knowledge of autism.
