I was previously Senior Lecturer in Law in the School of Law and Criminology at the University of Derby (with various roles from September 2007 until January 2014).
Additionally, I was Programme Leader for full-time LL.B awards at the University of Derby from August 2012 to January 2014. I was also an active Researcher in the Law in Society Research Group at the University of Derby from January 2010 to January 2014.
In May 2016 I was nominated by some of my students for a Faculty Inspirational Teaching Award for 2015-16, while in May 2015 I was also nominated for the same award for 2014-15. I was also nominated for both a Faculty Outstanding Student Support Award for 2014-15, and a University Inspirational Research Supervisor Award for 2014-15.
My teaching on the 'Human Rights Project' module in 2014/15 helped my students co-organise conference events on the themes of 'Human Rights and Dementia Care', and 'Art, Law and Freedom of Expression'. This led to my co-nomination for a Faculty Team Award for 2015 for our joint involvement in the Sheffield Hallam 'Social Justice Week' initiative in March 2015. In 2015/16, I helped my students organise successful events around issues of forced marriage, and misconceptions surrounding the 'refugee crisis' in Europe; leading to another co-nomination for a Faculty Team Award for 2016.
