I hold an LLB (Hons) from Exeter University, an LLM in European law from Leicester University, and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I gained six years' experience working as a legal officer in H.M.Attorney Generals Chambers in the Isle of Man before moving to Yorkshire to teach European Law and public law.
My current research is doctrinal and focuses on (1) the legal reasoning of the Court of Justice of the European Union; (2) Subsidiarity (3) Proportionality and (4) EU citizenship and, in particular, the residency rights of EU citizens.
I recently presented a Conference paper entitled, ‘Subsidiarity, an inherent respect for localism and the Court of Justice of the European Union’, at the Socio-Legal Studies Association Conference 26-28 March 2013 at York Law School, York University. I have also had a case note published in an online referred journal, the Web Journal of Current Legal Issues.
