I am a Law Teacher and tutor on the LLM in Canon Law, and assist in the academic administration of this degree. Within the School of Law and Politics I am also Assistant Director of the Centre for Law and Religion, where I share in the leadership of the Centre and take responsibility for convening two of the centre’s networks: the Colloquium of Anglican and Roman Catholic Canon Lawyers and the Church Law History Network.
I read Theology as an undergraduate and graduate at the University of Oxford, before training and practising as a corporate and financing solicitor at Slaughter and May and latterly Sullivan & Cromwell LLP in the City of London. I then trained for ordination in the Church of England at Westcott House in Cambridge, and I am currently Vicar of the parish of St Peter, Grange Park in North London. In addition to my work in the parish and in the School of Law and Politics, I am chair of governors at the Wren Academy Enfield (a new Church of England Secondary School), a trustee of the Ecclesiastical Law Society, a member of the Editorial Board of the Ecclesiastical Law Journal, and I teach Canon Law to clergy in the Diocese of London.
My research interests lie primarily in the field of Law and Religion, Canon Law and Ecclesiastical Legal History. I graduated from the LLM in Canon Law in 2016 and I am currently reading for a PhD in Ecclesiastical Legal History under the supervision of Professor Norman Doe.
