Dispute Management in Vernacular Forums in Rural KwaZulu-Natal. Until December 2013, she was a senior researcher in the Centre for Law and Society at the University of Cape Town (UCT), where she had worked on the Rural Women's Action-Research program—combining research and policy work on women, property and governing authority under indigenous law—since 2009. She also taught African Customary Law as an advanced Assistant Professor in UCT's Department of Private Law in 2011 and 2012. Dr. Weeks has published in academic and popular media on indigenous law, women’s rights, cultural rights, governance, participatory democracy, dispute management and the South African Constitution.

Prior to Oxford, she clerked for the Deputy Chief Justice of the Constitutional Court of South Africa, Dikgang Moseneke. She is a graduate of UCT from which she obtained a BA (in Law, Philosophy and Language) and LLB, both with distinction. She has been the recipient of a number of awards including a Skye Foundation Scholarship, a Mellon-Mays Fellowship and the 2012 Women in Science Award for the Development of Rural Women through Science and Technology. In September 2014, Dr. Weeks will take up a position as an advanced Assistant Professor in the Public Policy of Excluded Populations at the University of Massachusetts Boston's School for Global Inclusion and Social Development.
