Pro-Dean: International ESSL

I am Pro-Dean International for Faculty of Education, Social Sciences and Law (ESSL) at the University of Leeds, having been Pro-Dean for Student Education from 2009 to 2017.  I have law degrees from the Universities of Oxford and Harvard and held a Kennedy Scholarship in 1983-84. I have worked in the School of Law at the University of Leeds since 1984.  Previous roles within the School have included Admissions Tutor, Director of Student Education and Head of School.  I am Chair of the Family Law Subject Group for the International Association of Law Schools.  I am a LITE Teaching Enhancement Project Leader for 2017-2018 working on a project to evaluate the use and impact of Collaborative Lecture Theatres.

Research Interests

My interests include financial provision on divorce and child protection. I am also interested in the law relating to older people, particularly in the context of family and community care law.

In the context of my interests in legal education, I am particularly interested in internationalisation and widening participation and diversity.


I lecture in family and child law and have an interest in legal education.
