Cerys has been lecturing in law since 1993. She started her career lecturing in Contract and Commercial Law, having graduated with a LLB in Business Law and an LLM in European and International Trade law. Her lifelong passion for sport, however, led her to complete a further master's degree in International Sports Law in 1999. Whilst continuing to be involved with the Contract Law module, Cerys is the module leader for two Sports Law modules on the LLB, Sport and Liability and Sport and Legal Issues. Discrimination in sport and in particular, gender issues in sport are her main areas of interest. She is a fellow of the Higher Education Academy which recognises commitment to professionalism in teaching and learning in Higher Education.
Cerys has always enjoyed focusing on the pastoral side of the student experience and this is reflected in her roles within the School. She is the Disability and Wellbeing link tutor, Senior Academic Mentor and as the Safeguarding Officer she has responsibility for overseeing the wellbeing of any students studying within the School who are under 18. Cerys is actively involved with student engagement and participates regularly in presenting Sports Law workshops in schools and on a range of university outreach programmes.
When not working, Cerys can be found hanging around Cardiff Arms Park supporting Cardiff RFC and Cardiff Blues rugby teams or generally just watching sport!
