About

I was appointed to the role of 'Lecturer in Law' in November 2013.

I am currently the (Acting) Programme Leader for the University of Derby's Undergraduate Law programmes (LLB (Hons.) Law/LLB (Hons.) Law with Criminology).

Teaching responsibilities

During my time at the University of Derby I have taught on Undergraduate modules related to tort law and professional skills (legal context, skills and ethics).

At present I am the module leader for two modules on the LLB (Hons.) Law/LLB (Hons.) Law with Criminology, namely:

  • Tortious Liability and Remedies (Semester 1); and
  • Specific Torts & Remedies (Semester 2).

Research interests

My research interests lie predominantly in the field of medical law; specifically assisted suicide/euthanasia, consent, and clinical negligence. I am currently working on a medical law text book.

Experience in industry

I had originally intended to pursue a career as a solicitor. With that in mind I enrolled on the LPC with the College of Law, Chester. I completed the course in July 2004 earning a (Commendation). As I was looking for a training contract I was offered my first post in academia, and I have never looked back.
