About me

In recent years, I have taught legal modules in the department of Architecture and the Built Environment. I am now based in UWE's Law School, with a focus on professional practice skills, including the Law Clinic.

My primary scholarly interest relates to pedagogy, in particular how constructive alignment and authentic assessment can help students develop professional skills alongside legal knowledge. I am an "early adopter" of technology in this regard, and am especially keen to explore digital assessment opportunities. More widely, I am also interested in how law and practice (especially dispute resolution) can accomodate emerging technologies, including psychological and sociological implications.

Background: After studying the GDL and LPC at UWE, I spent eleven years in legal practice, in commercial litigation and dispute resolution (advising clients in a number of industry sectors). I obtained a Post-Graduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education in 2017. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (currently pursuing Senior Fellowship), and I am an Accredited Civil/Commercial Mediator.
