As a qualified Solicitor Advocate, I have many years of experience in the legal sector. These real-life legal skills help me to ensure that the university’s law programmes, cover the theoretical knowledge needed to succeed in the law but with a practical edge. This approach helps our students to place the theory from books and journals into everyday legal situations and helps to ensure that our successful law graduates can quickly adapt to working in legal settings.
In addition, as a qualified Solicitor, I have responsibility for supervising the University Pro-Bono scheme. This scheme provides learners with the chance to engage in a range of ongoing activities all designed to improve your knowledge of the law and your practical skills.
