Calm guidance to success in the first stages of successful legal training.

Methodology

First I like to get to know those I am teaching; their strengths and weaknesses in academic terms and in terms of their learning methods, speed, confidence and so on. I like to draw all the students into the class process and avoid the more timid or reticent getting isolated, always teaching to the back of the class and generate a positive spirit and motivate the sudents as a group.

Experience

I am a qualified barrister who taught for sixteen years at degree level. My specialisms were public lawwith human rights against a background of EU law. Whether Brexit takes or not a grouding in EU law is going to be crucial;weare surrounded by states whose systemds are solidly grounded in EU law.

Since August 2015 I have devoted time to an environmental project which I launched while at London Met. It involves promoting separation of domestic kitchen waste and its conversion into compost for local gardeners. Funding was secured through the University enterprise fund initially and then through independent sources including a local housing association (Eastend Homes) who provided us with a site which we have occupied since 2014 now with a permanent base.

We received an award in 2016 and last secured additional means through a crowd funding exercise which received the support of London Borough of Tower Hamlets as well as Veolia, an international waste company and a variety of other bodies and individuals. Day to day administration is now delegated to local residents.

I’ve also been advising on property matters to a number of associates.

Other activities: Management of Mansfield Law Society 2009 - 13
Foundation of Popup Composting not for profit social enterprise in conjunction with Eastend Homes and London Metropolitan University

Strengths: Good communicator as teacher and pastoral adviser; ability to get behind conceptual intricacies and make available to students; sympathetic and approachable; broad mind and sense of humour; hard working and reliable.

Specialism: I am a generalist in that I have been called upon to fill gaps owing to staff absence or swelling student numbers in particular modules. However, the area I have most experience in is Public Law which means Constitutional Rights Act 1998 and Britain's membership, hitherto, of the EU and signatory the ECHR as they have developed.

Teaching experience: I have lectured to classes from seven or eight students to 140 and have not encountered problems in handling either. I have taught both undergraduates and graduates and have therefore had to adjust my approaches dealing with those of fairly low levels of achievement (ie no grasp of concepts of analysis or essay writing) and those that have graduated some time before and are then or have been in professional employment at a senior level.

I have run tutorials with class sizes from two or three to 24 (though strictly 18 was the maximum size). This again demanded adaptability. Almost without exception, student response was very positive, even when being driven fairly hard. I enjoy teaching and the company of the young and fell out with very, very few and never for very long.

I am white, English (some Spanish), heterosexual, separated with two adult children. I have no criminal convictions and am a Christian atheist.
