Prior to coming to Staffordshire University, I had almost ten years teaching experience at Nottingham Trent University. My teaching has generally focused on family law and I write and update an undergraduate text-book. Whilst at Nottingham Trent I completed my Ph. D which was a comparative study of mandatory reporting in English and French criminal law. This involved qualitative research in both England and France.
