    qualified lawyers

  • Our tutors have unrivalled experience of training students for legal careers. We employ more than 200 tutors across our eight centres to deliver our undergraduate, postgraduate and professional development training.

    Here is a summary of the experience of some our LLB tutors.

    Paula Littlewood
    LLB Course Leader - Guildford

    I teach on the Legal Essentials module in Guildford and I also teach on the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and Legal Practice Course (LPC). I was a student at Guildford myself and lived in the centre of town so I know it well. I trained in London and worked as a property lawyer but, deep down, I knew that I wanted to teach law rather than practise it. That’s when I joined The University of Law and have never looked back.

    Helen Carter
    Public Law Tutor - Guildford

    I am a Senior Tutor here at Guildford, as well as being Bar Liaison Tutor. I will be teaching on the EU Law module in the third term, and I also teach on the GDL and LPC. I run a number of Bar-related extracurricular activities such as mooting, mock trials and speaker events.

    Sukhjinder Sekhon
    Senior Tutor - Birmingham

    I’m a Senior Tutor at Birmingham and will be teaching the EU Law module on the LLB. I also teach Litigation on the LPC course and various subjects on the PSC too, such as Personal Injury, Insurance Law and Negotiation Skills, to name but a few. As well as teaching, I coordinate The University of Law’s debating competition here at Birmingham.

    Kevin Griffiths
    LL.B Course Leader – Bristol

    As well as being the course leader I teach on three LLB modules – Legal Essentials, Tort Law, and Criminal Law. Since becoming a law tutor in 2006 I have taught Business Law Litigation, Advocacy, Banking and Insurance and Public Law across The University of Law’s various courses. Before that I practised in London as a commercial litigator for several City firms.

    Sonja Golding
    Senior Tutor - Chester

    I am a Senior Tutor at the Chester centre and I will be teaching the Legal Essentials and Tort modules. As well as the LLB, I teach on many of the postgraduate programmes at the University including the GDL, LPC and PSC. I specialise in Civil Litigation and Dispute Resolution, Criminal Law, Tort and Family Law.

    Penny Hayhurst
    LLB Course Leader – London Bloomsbury

    I’m the LLB Course Leader at the London Bloomsbury centre. I've been teaching at the University since 2003, and also teach on the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and the Legal Practice Course (LPC). I undertook my training contact at Clyde & Co and qualified as a solicitor in 1999, specialising in Employment Law. I also worked as an assistant solicitor for American law firm Squire Sanders & Dempsey where I was seconded to British Sky Broadcasting as an in-house employment lawyer.

    Chris Dryland
    Operations Manager and LL.B Course Leader

    I am the LLB course leader at The University of Law York and teach tort law. I trained at a Magic Circle firm in the City of London specialising in commercial litigation, and became a full time lecturer in 2006.

  • A lot of students at bigger universities get lost in the mix – here it’s familiar friendly faces every day.
