I have a keen interest in business law, commercial law and property law having trained and qualified with Geldards LLP, one of the UK's leading regional commercial law firms. I specialised in Property Finance and Secured Lending following my qualification as a solicitor. I am currently module leader for, and lecture on, the core modules of Business Law & Practice and Professional Conduct & Regulation on the Swansea Legal Practice Course (LPC). In addition, I am module leader for, and lecture on, the elective modules of Advanced Commercial Law and Employment Law on the LPC.
At undergraduate level, I deliver lectures and conduct seminars in Competition Law. Previously, I have been the module leader for the Business Law I and Business Law II courses. These courses primarily involved delivering lectures for the School of Management, which focused on how the fundamental laws of England and Wales apply in a business context.
During my time at the College of Law, I have designed and delivered both lectures and seminars on Comparative Company Law as part of the LLM Taught Masters programme and have led seminars in the Equity & Trusts module on the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL).
In June 2012, I was pleased to be amongst those members of academic staff nominated for the Swansea University Distinguished Teaching Award 2012.
In July 2013, I was appointed as the Director of Experiential Learning for the College of Law. In addition, I am responsible for co-ordinating Pro Bono activities on the LPC and GDL.
In August 2013, I was appointed as a Champion of the Swansea University Academy of Learning & Teaching, representing the College of Law.
I read Law at Cardiff University, achieving an LL.B with First Class Honours in 2002. I was awarded a Post-graduate Diploma in Legal Practice with Commendation from Cardiff University in 2003 and was admitted as a solicitor in 2005 following qualification with Geldards LLP Law Firm (formerly Edwards Geldard Solicitors). I joined Swansea University in August 2007.
