Course Director

School of Justice, Security and Sustainability

I attended Staffordshire University as a mature student and gained my Batchelor of Law, I then went on to study as a post graduate student and attained my LPC. I worked in practice for a number of years, dealing with high value, civil litigation cases. Prior to this I have ran a national corporate company and built a successful company from scratch. Being a practitioner has enabled to use my experience of law in action with the students in a practical sense.
