Personal profile



I am a Senior Teaching Fellow at Portsmouth Law School, with an interest in the development of personal tutoring provision in the Law School. I teach across all three years of the undergraduate degrees.


I graduated from the University of Oxford with a BA (Hons) Degree in Human Sciences, before going on to the College of Law in Guildford to complete my academic and professional qualifications as a solicitor. My career in the law began in the early 1990s when I worked as an assistant solicitor in the Civil & Commercial Litigation Department of a 'Magic Circle' law firm in the City of London. I have since worked for Local Authorities and Charities, joining the University of Portsmouth in 2012 as a part-time hourly paid lecturer in Portsmouth Law School.

I was appointed as a full-time Teaching Fellow in 2015,  becoming a Senior Teaching Fellow and Level 4 Tutor in 2017, and Senior Tutor in 2018.

Teaching Responsibilities

I teach English Legal System (ELS) at Level 4, Legal Writing & Research (LWR) at Level 5 and the Legal Project and Dissertation at Level 6 on the undergraduate Law LLB courses. I also teach Legal Issues in Procurement & Supply (LIPS) modules to Level 5 Business students in the Business & Law Faculty. I am joint module coordinator for each of ELS, LWR, and LIPS. I have also taught Current Legal Issues, Business & Employment Law, and Criminal Law for Business in the past and have experience of teaching and coordinating law modules on postgraduate courses, including Expert Witnessing and Dispute Resolution and the Postgraduate Dissertation.




Research Interests
