After gaining his undergraduate law degree many years ago, Andrew qualified as a solicitor and worked in private practice for 11 years, handling a variety of litigation work but mainly specialising in personal injury and employment law actions. Since altering course to pursue an academic career, he has taught a wide range of law subjects on undergraduate law degree courses at two Universities in the West Midlands. This has included all the Foundations of Legal Knowledge subjects as well as more specialist legal practice modules.
In addition to teaching, he has continued to carry out research in his specialist areas of employment law and the regulation of businesses, particularly those which require a licence from the State or a state body to operate lawfully. He has published and presented papers on his research areas in a number of journals and at conferences, nationally and internationally. Other research interests include public law, property law, human rights law and legal education.
