Teaching

Over the last few years, I have taught quite the range of courses – but they fall into the broad categories of technology law, media law, and public law. In Newcastle, I am on the first year public law team, co-teach a final year option in Media Law, and teach a postgraduate option in The Law Of E-Commerce. I also taught Legal Research Skills and Methods to our postgraduate (LLM) students from 2014-16.

At previous institutions, I taught a range of courses. In Edinburgh, I set up and taught Communications, networks and the law (LLM) and Entertainment Law (LLB, Honours option). I also taught e-commerce, international IP, public law, and European and international human rights law. At UEA, teaching included a new module on Internet law (offered for the first time in 2010), media, entertainment, and sports law, and public law (all three at undergraduate level), and a number of postgraduate courses,  including Internet Law and Governance, and Commercial Aspects of Media Law.

I was also one of the team for Media and Society from 2008-2012, jointly delivered by the schools of Law, International Development, Economics, Political, Social & International Studies (PSI) and Film & TV Studies. It’s a year-long core module for students on the LLM in Media Law, Policy & Practice but also for students on various media-related degrees across the media@uea initiative, including the popular degrees on Media, Culture and Society and Media & International Development. I taught classes on media regulation, copyright, pluralism, audiences and new media as part of this module.
