Philosophy & approach

My teaching is based on the idea that only solid theorising can help us truly understand legal doctrine, but also that attention to the details, the 'boring' bits of the law is the best way into the law's 'secrets'. I try to run an inclusive classroom and to teach a wide range of materials both in terms of opinion and in terms of identities that have so far been marginalised in the study of the law.
