Personal profile


I became a Lecturer in the Department of Law in Aberystwyth in 1995; after nearly ten years I worked as Reader then Professor, first at Swansea University Law School and then at Exeter University School of Law, returning to Wales in 2015.  I have taught many subjects in Law and in Criminology and have also enjoyed teaching in other settings, for example as a Visiting Lecturer in English and Media Studies and also in Philosophy, teaching legal perspectives, I have also taught Medical Ethics and Law to medical students as well as law students.  Over the years I have published two books and a number of book chapters and articles. These mostly focus upon links between law, literature and philosophy but also consider aspects of psychological or medical significance.
