Ms Helen Burton
Senior Teaching Fellow
I am a Senior Teaching Fellow at Portsmouth Law School in the fields of contract, employment and company law. I am also a solicitor.
I joined the University of Portsmouth in 1999 as a part time lecturer. In 2010, I became a senior law lecturer and then switched to a Senior Teaching Fellow in 2016. Prior to my joining the University, I had a successful City career in private practice as a solicitor and associate partner advising several national multiple retailers and Footsie 100 companies in commercial conveyancing matters.
I teach and co-ordinate modules on both undergraduate and post graduate courses, involving those aspects of contract, employment and company law applying to businesses and people who work for businesses.
