About me

I was admitted as a Solicitor in 1992 and joined the UWE Bristol Law School in 1998. 

I teach on the undergraduate Law degree programme, on the vocational postgraduate Legal Practice Course, and am also engaged in empirical research.



Area of expertise

I teach Civil Litigation, Family Law and Legal Skills on the post-graduate Legal Practice Course for Intending Solicitors, and Dispute Resolution Skills and Family Law on the undergraduate Law degree programme.  

My research interests include the Family Law and the Family Justice System, Children's Social Care and Adult Social Care, and Professional Ethics.  I am happy to supervise dissertation students in any of these areas.

I am currently engaged in empirical research in the field of Children's Social Care, specifically in relation to 'pre-proceedings' .  The local authorities involved include Bristol and Chester.   I have recently given the following conference papers:

ISFL World Conference, Amsterdam, 25th-29th July 2017: 'Why pre-proceedings work is important and needs to involve children.'

SLSA Conference, University of Bristol, 27th-29th March 2018: 'Children's social care, pre-proceedings and capacity:
The impact of professional language and other barriers on parents with learning disabilities.'
