Stipendiary Lecturer in Law



Academic Background


I read for the BA in Jurisprudence (2014-2017) at Brasenose College, Oxford, for which I received the Martin Wronker Prize for the best performance in FHS. I returned to Brasenose to read for the Bachelor of Civil Law (2018-2019) as a Temple Chambers Scholar, ultimately receiving a distinction.

I was then appointed a Lecturer in Law (2019) at Brasenose, before taking up a Prize Fellowship at All Souls College.
