Lecturer in Law

Marketing, Events and Law

Law is a challenging and demanding subject that requires passion, heart and commitment. It's what attracted me to the subject as a student and what continues to drive me as an academic.


I spent a number of years in practice before deciding to go back and complete my PGCE in 2012. Since then I have never looked back. For me, teaching is one of the best jobs and there is no better feeling than working with a group of students and helping them to understand complex legal issues. I pride myself on being able to explain tricky concepts in a straightforward and easy to understand manner.
