Profile

Kathryn is a Solicitor and Teaching Fellow in Clinical Legal Education.

Kathryn leads on the University's Streetlaw project. This provides our students with the opportunity to research, design and deliver interactive presentations regarding legal rights and responsibilities to members of the community.

Kathryn is co-cordinator of all of the Law Clinic modules, along with offering supervision as part of the Law Clinic. Kathryn is also part of the Law Careers team, which involves arranging careers events and offering advice and guidance to our students about their future careers.

As a Solicitor, Kathryn specialises in education law. Prior to joining Lancaster University, Kathryn worked for a firm of solicitors based in Lancaster city centre. Here, the majority of the work she undertook was legal aid work and consisted of assisting parents who have children with special educational needs and/or disabilities challenge decisions made by Local Authorities in respect of their child's education and the level of support they received in school. Challenges were made to the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal.

In addition, Kathryn regularly advised parents on matters relating to school admissions, school exclusions, home to school transport, judicial review, disability discrimination in schools and community care issues.

Kathryn is a member of the Committee for the Lancaster, Morecambe and District Law Society.
