I am a lecturer within Derby Law School. I have been teaching for the last 8 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 focused 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.

In September 2015 I began working as an Associate Lecturer at the University of Derby, taking Equity and Successions tutorials. I have been a full time lecturer at Derby University since January 2017, when I became module leader for the level 5 module Land Law. I also became a personal tutor for students across all three year groups.

In September 2017, I taught Land Law to Level 5 students and Equity and Successions to Level 6 students. I also assisted with Intellectual Property Law and acted as stage tutor for Year 3.

This year I have taken on the role of Year One Tutor, and am therefore responsible for enabling students as they transition into university education. I have also taken over Level 4 Contract Law.

Over the last few years, I have had an increased role with regards to employability within Derby Law School; organising and running the Derby Law School Career Pathway Scheme and Step Programme. In particular, I am the editor of the Derby Law School Career Blog.
