Welcome to my blog. I am a legal academic and have previously held posts as a Reader at Leeds Beckett University based in the Leeds Law School. Before that I was Head of Law at the University of Bradford. My research interests are varied but all in some way linked to legal education, questions of identity, academic careers and mobility or equality or in some cases all of them. So expect posts of that nature with a good measure of randomness included.
I have, over the course of my career so far, taught all sorts of stuff from English Legal System to EU Law to Legal Skills to Employment Law and more quirky options like Law and Society. As Head of School I did’t teach as much. If you want to know more about my teaching please visit my teaching page (which I will get round to updating eventually).
My varied research interests have seen me study highly skilled mobility within the EU, gender equality in promotions in the HE sector, internationalisation of legal education and the nature of good teaching. I have also written about my experiences of becoming a law lecturer. I am currently writing about Legal Education and about feminist perspectives on EU law and policy.
I have various roles externally. I am the Chair of the Association of Law Teachers and the Deputy Editor of the Law Teacher: The International Journal of Legal Education. I am also a member of the Socio-Legal Studies Association Executive and the Chair of the grants committee and I have sat on the Society of Legal Scholars Legal Education sub-committee.
Details of my roles, publications and academic presentations are listed in my CV – email me if you would like a copy
