Dr Imogen Jones
I joined the University of Leeds in September 2016. Prior to that I held lectureships at the University of Birmingham and the University of Manchester. I hold degrees from the University of Manchester (LLB and PhD) and the University of Sheffield (MA International Criminology).
My research deals with the criminal law and process. Most recently I have examined the role of deceased bodies within the criminal law. I am currently carrying out a pilot study involving talking to forensic pathologists about their work with an attitudes towards bodies as a part of the criminal process.
I teach criminal law and evidence law. I am committed to the practice of research led teaching and am excited by opportunities for innovation in legal education. I strongly believe in working with students as members of an academic community.
I am happy to supervise PhD students in areas of criminal law, criminal evidence law and criminal justice.
