I am a retired Circuit Judge but for some time now I have been a part-time Senior Lecturer at Exeter University. My principal subjects are Family Law, Legal Foundations, Criminal Law and Advocacy. I have 30 years experience as a Barrister and Queen's Counsel, and 14 years as a Judge sitting in the West Country trying mostly Family and Criminal Cases. I also assist students with their CV's and applications for professional and academic studies. I also tutor students in A and AS level Law. My fees are negotiable but I charge 45p per mile for travelling to a client. Please contact me via my e-mail address.

How would you describe your teaching style?

I like it to be interactive and dynamic. I like to get students to think for themselves and develop their own style (e.g. advocacy skills). I aim to pass on to students the benefits of my 44 years of experience as a lawyer, advocate and judge.
