• Postgraduate tutors

  • We employ more than 200 highly-qualified tutors across our eight centres to deliver our undergraduate, postgraduate and professional development training.

    They all have extensive experience of working in practice and know what skills and qualities are valued by future employers. And they know that there is nothing like practical experience to enhance your career prospects.

    Our tutors all have a passion for the law, which is why many practise as well as teach. The insight they provide into the daily working of the legal system is invaluable and grounded in experience, which means you benefit from an up-to-date and realistic picture of modern legal practice.

    Here are brief profiles of just a few of our postgraduate tutors:
