I am the Deputy Head of Coventry Law School and also a Senior Lecturer in Law. Holding LLB (Hons) and LLM degrees – both in Business Law, I qualified as a Solicitor before joining Coventry University in 1996.  Since that time I have held many roles including Associate Head of School; Academic Course Director for the LLB Commercial Law course; and have taught various modules on the undergraduate and postgraduate courses.  My areas of specialism are Property Law and Intellectual Property Law, which I taught for many years on the LLB courses; and International Trade Law which I taught on the LLM Courses.  Having a keen interest in pedagogy and information technology, I was also the Digital Literacy Champion for Coventry Law School. I am actively involved in promoting the inclusion of new technology in teaching and learning and examining ways in which this can improve the student experience.  I currently lead the Law School’s internationalisation initiatives and I am also undertaking Doctoral Research into internationalisation of education and enhancement of the student experience for international students.
