About

I am an Associate Lecturer at Derby Law School, currently teaching Equity and Trusts tutorials to Level 6 students.

I have been teaching for the last 5 years. My first experience as a lecturer came during my time at University where, as an undergraduate law student, I set up and ran a tutoring service for first and second year law students. These sessions focussed predominantly on Contract Law, Land Law, Tort Law and Legal Skills. After finishing my Undergraduate degree, and during my Masters, I was employed as an hourly paid lecturer by the University of Salford, teaching law to Law and Accounting students. Here I taught the Law of Contract, Tort, and English Legal Process to a group of around 130 business and accounting students. Additionally since 2014, I have been working as a Graduate Teaching Assistant and seminar leader at the University of Leeds, taking European Union Law seminars for level 5, and Equity and Trusts seminars for level 6.

I have been teaching at the University of Derby since September 2015.

Research interests

My research interests lie predominantly in the field of Intellectual Property Law, specifically focussing on the interaction between intellectual property and medical law. I am currently writing my Ph.D on the interaction between trade mark law and the right to health. This project looks at the practical problem caused by modern functions of trademarks, whilst asking whether attempts by the government to restrict such functions through packaging legislation is truly the best option.
