I joined the School of Law in August 2011 having read for my LLB and MSc by research at the School of Law. In 2010 I was awarded my doctorate ‘Equity in Scots Law’ by the University of Cambridge, having been supervised by David Ibbetson and Graham Virgo. In 2009 I was also Neil Walker’s research assistant for his report into final appellate jurisdiction in Scotland. Between 2009-2011 I was a lecturer at the University of Dundee where I taught Legal Method and Systems; Administrative Law, Scottish Property Law; English Law of Land, Trusts and Equity; Commercial Law and Criminal Law. I have also taught on a number of summer schools to encourage access to law at university, and spent a number of months as a visiting researcher at the Max Planck Institute for International and Comparative Private Law as part of an exchange with the University of Cambridge, and was associated with Professor Reinhard Zimmermann’s group.
