Biography

I am a Lecturer in Criminal Law at the Dickson Poon Law School at KCL. Please don’t hesitate to email me if I can be of any help at all.

Research Interests

I am interested in most aspects of the criminal law, and in particular I study its history in the courts of Star Chamber and King’s Bench. Most of my sources are in the Public Record Office of the National Archives, and in manuscript in various libraries. This material is of interest not only for what it tells us about the substantive law, but also for what it implies for the rule of law, and for the nature of law more generally.

Teaching

I have taught Criminal Procedure and Evidence, Criminal Law, Legal History, and Jurisprudence. In 2019-2020, I mainly teach Criminal Law
