Kathryn Harvey

Senior Lecturer

School of Justice, Security and Sustainability

I have worked within the legal arena for over 30 years, starting my career in the Lord Chancellors Department, which subsequently became Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunal Service. I have worked within both the public and private sector as a Solicitor and retain my practising certificate. I am passionate about bringing real life experience to the classroom and equipping students with the relevant legal and practical skills to succeed once they have completed their legal education.
