I am a senior lecturer in Law, the Academic Careers Lead for Law and the Deputy Course Leader for the LLB Law.
My teaching focuses on the development of professional legal skills and attributes in undergraduate law students. I led the Law Clinic for a number of years and on the Company law undergraduate module. I continue to teach across a range of other clinical and skills based modules. I also assisted in the set up and supervision of Sheffield Hallam's innovative Small Claims Court Helpdesk.
My teaching interests are presently focused on applying my significant experience in practice to assisting students in developing their practical legal skills, through the clinical modules offered at Sheffield Hallam.

My research interests focus on clinical legal education. I have presented at a number of SHU Faculty conferences and at the European Network for Clinical Legal Education conference in 2018.
I have an interest in developing my research profile through exploring the importance of and development of resilience in law students, as a key graduate attribute.
My role as Careers Tutor for law students sees me working closely with the careers and employability team at SHU and liaising with members of the legal profession across Yorkshire and further afield, to bring exciting opportunities to our students.
I developed our annual Lawyer in London trip, which sees up to 20 first year students spending some of their summer exploring opportunities in law and social justice in London. I work closely with our law alumni community to ensure that our former students are able to share their experiences with our current students, and inspire them to achieve their potential.
