Tracey Horton

Senior Lecturer

School of Justice, Security and Sustainability

I am a Solicitor, Senior Lecturer and Manager of SULAC. I qualified as Solicitor in 1994 and worked in London for several years before returning to the North West in 2000. Throughout my career I have dealt with several areas of law including general litigation, personal injury, clinical negligence, contentious probate and employment law.

I was recruited by Staffordshire University in 2018 to set up and manage the legal advice clinic which is run as a module at level 6. SULAC went live in October 2018.
