James Hulme LLB (Hons); PGCE (LLS)

Lecturer in Law


I joined the department in December 2022, having taught Law at all levels in the Further Education sector for fourteen years. My focus areas are Crime, Negligence, Contract, Employment, Land, and the English Legal System.
I have a particular interest in the history of crime and punishment, and the development of law in the Early Medieval period.


I currently lead and lecture on the Introduction to Law and Practice module, and deliver seminar workshops on Land Law and the Law of Contract, as well as delivering the Introduction to Law module for our international students.
During my fourteen years in the FE sector, I taught a wide variety of modules on BTEC courses, A-level, Foundation degree and the CILEx professional diploma courses at levels three and six.
Specific Interests:
- The history of crime and punishment- I am fascinated by the development of punishments through the ages.
- The legal codes of Anglo Saxon kings, and the state of law and legal functioning in England in the Early Medieval period during which Viking settlement occurred.
