Specialist areas of interest
Peter primarily teach in areas related to public law: administrative law, the English legal system, and EU law.
He is developing a module to enable students to work on legal innovation as part of the LawSync project and is also using some of the methodologies underpinning LawSync to contribute to the design of an applied equality law module which would make use of links with equality law practitioners to help students become commercially relevant in that field.
