I joined the Department of Law and Criminology in 2013 having previously taught the Legal Practice Course and Graduate Diploma in Law at a leading provider of legal education. Prior to that I practised law in both the private and public sectors. p>
Since starting at Sheffield Hallam University I have taught on a range of academic and clinical modules on the Law and Criminology degree courses as well as supervising a number of dissertations. I also teach on post-graduate Masters level modules.
My main teaching interests are in the area of family law and I design and deliver the family law and policy module to undergraduate third year law students. I also teach introductory courses on law and criminology and practice aimed at first year undergraduate students. In the criminology field I have an interest in the study of victimisation and teach on a related module to second year Criminology students.
My principal research interests include child protection and state intervention. In particular, I am interested in the impact of legislation, policy and state actions on the private interests of the child and family and the associated human rights context. Since joining the university I have completed a LLM in research which focussed on this area and delivered conference papers on the topic.
