I joined Leicester Law School having previously been a lecturer at the University of Manchester, the University of East Anglia and De Montfort University.

I was awarded my PhD by the University of Birmingham. My thesis was on the subject of trustees' powers, overreaching and the 1925 property legislation.


I have undertaken research in Land Law and the Law of Trusts, including offshore trust law. I have been a Visiting Professor in Jersey Trusts Law at the Institute of Law, Jersey. My current research interests are centred on creating teaching and learning methods particularly in relation to critical thinking, problem solving, and the different approaches to learning in law.
