Biography

I am a Principal Lecturer in Law at Lancashire Law School, University of Central Lancashire and have been teaching in higher education for over 25 years. For over 10 years I have been the academic lead for teaching and learning in a school of around 1000 students and 40 staff. During this time I have led initiatives on e-learning, feedback, skills acquisition and personal tutoring.

Areas of Research / Professional Expertise

    My main research interests are in Public Law though I have also published on human rights, particularly privacy, and EU environmental law.

    I also have a long standing interest in e-learning and innovation in representation of law. I developed OpenLawMap, a free open educational resource, for mapping and blogging about significant legal places, and the first jurisdiction-wide geographical legal map for anywhere in the world. I used this as the basis for the Preston Law Trail – an interactive team-based walking trail for which I won the Association of Law Teachers / Routledge Prize for Teaching Law with Technology Prize.

Personal Interests

    I am on the Board of the Blackburn Rovers Supporters Trust working for supporter / community ownership of my local football team, and also love art history, Spanish culture and stargazing.
