Kathryn Saban

Bowland North




Kathryn is a Solicitor, Lecturer and Director of Clinical Legal Education. She is also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Kathryn leads on the University's Street Law project. This provides our students with the opportunity to research, design and deliver interactive presentations regarding legal rights and responsibilities. These presentations are delivered to school children, community groups and charities.

Kathryn is the Director of Lancaster University’s award-winning Law Clinic. Within the Law Clinic our students interview members of the public about their legal issue, they conduct legal research and draft letters of advice. The Law Clinic won the FASS Outstanding Contribution to Engagement Award 2020.

Kathryn is also an Academic Employability Champion, 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. 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. 

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. Whilst in practice, Kathryn was recognised within The Legal 500.

Kathryn’s current research and scholarship focuses on clinical legal education and education law.

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