I also have a legislative drafting and training practice in the UK and abroad. I have published and edited a number of books and articles including Craies on Legislation, and I am the General Editor of Westlaw UK Annotated Statutes and Insight Encyclopaedia. I am also the Editor of OUP’s Statute Law Review, the editor of two legal dictionaries and an adviser to the Oxford English Dictionary.

A former national journalist she has produced pioneering social media and digital projects for the world’s leading charities and organisations including Save the Children, UNESCO, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Oxfam and Sightsavers.

Crowdfunding for rare cancer trials
In 2012 /2013 Liz Scarff and Dom Nutt worked pro-bono to crowdfund £2 million to fund a trial at Uppsala University into a potential cure for neuroendocrine tumours – a rare type of cancer. Without the crowdfunded money a trial for this potential treatment would never have gone ahead.
This project has been showcased at TEDMED and featured in the FT, Nature Magazine, Guardian among others.
