Following completion of a qualifying law degree Scott embarked upon a career in commercial management, whilst also completing postgraduate study at Cardiff University Law School where he specialised in commercial law. He later qualified as a solicitor following completion of the LPC at BPP University.
During his management career, he was involved in several major projects and initiatives, which led to him being asked to deliver guest lectures to university students. This sparked an interest in teaching.
Scott returned to university as a mature student to complete a PGCE and was later awarded Qualified Teacher Status, having completed placements teaching law and business. Following the PGCE, he completed an MA in Professional Development, Education & Training.
In 2014 he was appointed as a lecturer in the School of Management. Scott has taught across almost all departmental subject areas, including: marketing; strategy; enterprise & innovation; and people & organisations.
Outside of the university Scott works as a consultant solicitor with a primary focus on commercial law and litigation. Scott is also a trustee and vice chair of a national advocacy charity.
Between 2014-16 Scott served as an adviser in the European Parliament, and between 2016-18 as a senior adviser in the National Assembly for Wales. Scott is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy; a member of the Association of Law Teachers; and a member of the Society of Legal Scholars.
Scott previously served as peer reviewer for the Journal of International & Interdisciplinary Business Research and the textbook Effective Management.
