School of Law
I studied at Glasgow and Sheffield, and held academic posts at Durham, Manchester and Nottingham Law Schools, before joining Sheffield in 2007. I enjoy integrating research with teaching and learning, and one of the things I particularly like about being a Professor is working with students on research projects (both mine and theirs).
- PhD, University of Sheffield
- LLB (Hons), University of Glasgow
- Research interests
I am currently working in three broad areas:
- Transnational, global and comparative health law;
- Equality and Diversity; and
- Legal Education
I am Principal Investigator of Health Governance after Brexit, an ERSC-funded project that investigates the effects of Brexit on health and the NHS and compares the views of legal and policy experts with those of 'ordinary people' in towns in Northern Ireland and the north of England. We want to know what post-Brexit NHS people will regard as legitimate, and who should be held accountable for delivering that.
I am collaborating with UK, EU and North American - based scholars, policy-makers, practitioners, across disciplines. I am one of the Co-investigators on the Jean Monnet network on EU health law and policy in comparative contexts, with Katherine Fierlbeck (Dalhousie). I am working on patient and professional autonomy, human rights, and trans-national law on cross-border trade, with Laura Robinson (student intern), Anniek de Ruijter (Amsterdam), Mary Ziegler (Florida State) and Rebecca Gomperts (‘Women on Web’). David Orentlicher (Las Vegas) and I are working on a major project on comparative health law, to be published by OUP.
Following the 23 June 2016 referendum, I am contributing to understanding the UK’s future legal relationships with the EU, in particular its implications for health law and policy, both within the UK and within the remainder of the EU. I served as Specialist Advisor to the House of Lords Inquiry on Crossborder Care after Brexit, and I am retained as a Specialis Adviser to the House of Commons Health and Social Care Committee. My take on EU health law’s history and legacy appears in Stanton, et al, eds, Pioneering Healthcare Law: Essays in Honour of Margaret Brazier (Routledge, 2016).
I’m interested in several dimensions of equality and diversity. I worked with Bryan Coleman (Director Sheffield Disability Support), Harriet Cameron, (specialist in specific learning difficulties), Sabrina Rahman (student intern) on the Equality Act’s ‘reasonable adjustments’ duties of HE institutions. I ran a multi-faceted project on Equality and Diversity in Legal Education, including collaboration with the Legal Education Research Network (LERN). This project involved co-producing both learning & teaching materials and research with several postgraduate and undergraduate students,.
I have published on internationalisation and legal education; and on clinical legal education. I ran a project on the effects of Brexit on legal education, including two workshops, and a special issue of the Journal The Law Teacher.

- Teaching interests
I have taught in the areas in which I research for over 25 years. In modules and programmes that I have developed, students learn from the latest research, some of which is my own. For instance Advanced EU Law includes work I have published on the EU's future relationship with the UK.
An example of my teaching-led research came from supervising PhD and MA/LLM students. Noting that law students are often uncertain about the theory and methods that inform their research projects, I developed and delivered with colleagues a workshop for students to build their confidence in preparing their dissertations, and a module on Legal Research Methods for PhD students. From these, a successful AHRC application led to two regional workshops and a book Research Methodologies in EU and International Law (Hart, 2011).
I also integrate research with the undergraduate curriculum. I regularly work with one or more (paid) student interns on my research. Recent student work has supported charities such as Cancer Research UK, as well as creating a blog on comparative health law and database of health law researchers across two continents. Collaborative student work for Kidney Care UK was chosen to be showcased at the Houses of Parliament. Collaborative student work on clinical legal education was published in the inaugural issue of the European Journal of Legal Education. I have inspired student inquiry (leading to sole or co-authored publications) through successful applications for undergraduate summer internships since 2004, for example, Laura Robinson's prize-winning project on women’s rights.
