Teaching Responsibilities

Senior Lecturer in Law


Since qualifying with both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in law from the University of Nottingham, I have been involved in higher education at University of Buckingham, Buckinghamshire New University, and Virginia Tech State University in the United States of America.

In my present role at the University of Bolton my academic interests include public international law, jurisprudence and English legal history, while my research interests focus mainly on the use of force in international conflicts.

I am a former programme leader for the University of Bolton's LLB (Hons) and Law BA (Hons) degree programmes and also hold external roles at both the Leeds Beckett University and Leicester’s De Montfort University.
