I am a Lecturer in Public Law at the University of Sheffield and Research Director of the Public Law Project. I am also an Associate Fellow of the Sir Bernard Crick Centre for Public Understanding of Politics and a Wider Core Team Member of the UK Administrative Justice Institute. I have held visiting positions at King’s College London and Osgoode Hall Law School.
My interests lie in public and administrative law, and particularly the design of administrative redress systems. My work in this field has been published in leading journals and been funded by a range of organisations, including the ESRC and the Nuffield Foundation. Frequent updates on my work are available via my website, Law + Good Administration.
Much of my work is policy-focused. As Research Director at the Public Law Project, I lead the organisation’s engagement-focused research programme. I have completed and am engaged with independent projects that have been undertaken in partnership with the Ministry of Justice and HM Courts and Tribunals Service. I am a member of the HMCTS Tribunals Professional Users Engagement Forum and the JUSTICE working party for digital exclusion. I also sit on the Drafting Committee of the Bar Human Rights Committee. My work has been cited by a variety of bodies, including the Ministry of Justice, the All Parliamentary Group on the Rule of Law, and the House of Commons Library.
Before joining the University of Sheffield, I worked in the President’s Chambers of the EFTA Court, at Joseph Hage Aaronson LLP, at the British Institute for International and Comparative Law, and as Legal Assistant to Gerard McDermott QC.
