Professor Gillian Douglas has been appointed as the new Executive Dean of The Dickson Poon School of Law at Kings College, London.

A leading figure in family law, Professor Douglas will take up her new role in Spring 2017. She will drive Dickson Poon’s strategic direction, as well as playing an important role in the management and governance of the university.

Head of Cardiff Law School, Professor Dan Wincott said: “While we will be very sad to see Gillian go, this is a fantastic and much deserved opportunity for her.

“While at Cardiff Law School, Gillian has been an enormously influential colleague. As well as serving as Head of School during an important phase in our development, she made a critical contribution to establishing Cardiff as a leading centre for work on Family Law.

“All at Cardiff Law School wish her well in her new post.”

Professor Douglas is currently Professor of Law at Cardiff Law School, where she served as its Head between 2005 and 2010. She also served as Chair of the Law Sub-Panel for REF 2014.

She has written extensively on family law and has carried out a number of empirical research projects into the workings of the family justice system and the impact of law on family life.

Professor Douglas said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as Dean of the Dickson Poon School of Law. I will be leaving Cardiff University with very happy memories and I know that the School of Law and Politics will go from strength to strength in the years to come.”
