Who am I?
Who am I?
I joined Manchester Law School as a Senior Lecturer in Law in December 2004. Before this, I was employed as a Legal Adviser/employed barrister at Oxford Magistrates' Court, where I dealt with the full range of adult and youth criminal courts. I also had responsibility for cases involving football banning orders, anti-social behaviour orders and for taxation of costs from central funds.
My research and writing interests are in the fields of criminal law and mooting.
Criminal law, law of tort and mooting.
