I joined Cardiff Law School as a teacher in Law in October 2021 teaching undergraduate Tort and Human Rights modules.

I taught on the Legal Practice Course at the University of South Wales since September 2018 and worked as a practising solicitor with the police dealing with misconduct cases and formerly practised in Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence for several law firms.

My work involved issues surrounding Article 3, the right not to be subjected to inhuman or degrading treatment in relation to the alleged failure of police to investigate allegations of crime; Article 5, deprivation of liberty in relation to allegations of unlawful arrest and detention; Article 8, the right to respect for private and family life and Article 14 in relation to allegations of discrimination which also involved claims under the Equality Act.

My medical negligence work consisted of cases which dealt with fatalities under Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights along with tortious issues of negligence and breach of duty, causation, and the calculation of damages.

Notable cases: -

Morris v Gwent Healthcare NHS Trust [2007]

I am a qualified solicitor with specialism in Medical Law, Tort, Human Rights and Police Misconduct.

I am also a member of the Law Society of England and Wales 



I am currently teaching Human Rights and Tort in 2021/22
