Catherine joined the School of Law at Keele in October 2018 as Senior Practitioner. Previously, she was Head of Law at BPP Law School, Birmingham. Catherine is Director of Learning and Development at Birmingham Law Society and also chairs their Education and Training Committee.

Catherine is a solicitor and originally trained and practised in Surrey before moving to the West Midlands where she specialised in family law. Catherine has been teaching on both undergraduate and post graduate academic and vocational courses since 2005.


I currently teach on MA Child Law and Practice, undergraduate employment law and do guest spots on other modules where a practitioner focus is helpful.
