Colleagues, Adversaries, and Friends: John Adams and the Practise of Law in Massachusetts c.1758 – 1777
I graduated from the University of Stirling in 2006 with a B.A. (Hons) in History and while working as a civil servant I returned in 2011 to undertake the Masters of Research in Historical Research programme. I completed my dissertation ‘The Legal Friendships of John Adams c.1758 – 1777’ in 2013. Following on from my MRes work I started the part-time PhD programme in 2014 to undertake a full-scale study of John Adams’s legal career.
I am interested in John Adams, law in colonial and revolutionary America, pre-revolutionary Massachusetts, and the American Revolutionary era.
