I was admitted as a Solicitor in 1994 and became a partner in Berrymans Lace Mawer Solicitors in 1999. I left commercial practice in 2009 and subsequently started work in the higher education sector. I have been employed by Bournemouth University since 2010 & am currently the programme leader for the Graduate Diploma in Law. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I currently sit on the University Research Ethics Committee and am a post graduate researcher in Healthcare law & ethics.
