I studied Law with French Law at UCL and Paris II as an undergraduate before winning a scholarship to represent the UK at the College of Europe in Bruges where I undertook a LLM in European Legal Studies.
After teaching at UCL while reading for my Bar Exams, I worked initially in the City of London in UK and US law firms, in the EU Commission In Brussels, as well as independently undertaking projects for a variety of investment firms and NGOs helping them to measure legal risk and in the case of Christian Aid drafting a proposed EU regulation for use by it in its lobbying activities with EU institutions. After initially specialising in competition law, my work broadened to encompass in addition: EU Single Market/trade law, International security law, and WTO law.
I have taught or supervised dissertations in a number of domains including Law of the Sea, WTO law, Competition Law, M & A and Company Law, as well as Trusts/Equity, Land Law, Carriage of Goods and Public Law.
Prior to joining Stirling, I taught previously at UCL, BPP, Buckingham, Dundee and Warwick. I have worked extensively on admissions, outreach and careers matters. I was also a visiting research fellow at the British Institute of International & Comparative Law (2008-09).
While at the University of Warwick, I was a visiting lecturer at partner institutions in Asia: the Polytechnic University of Hong Kong and the Singapore Institute of Management.
