"I try to ensure that when a student has taken my Module, it is an experience they will not forget. I want them to discover the joy and value of learning; this is by ensuring that they can clearly see the connection between abstract legal concepts and the built environment in the real world.”

The following extract from Student Evaluation sums it up:

“She prods our thinking and helps us understand the real world implications of law and also its application. It is a great joy to attend her lessons because one can expect to learn a great deal from it as she will cover real world situations that any lay person could face and provides the necessary information and tools to deal with any future problems we could face. Suffice to say, I have learned a great deal from her and will continue to do so with the tools she has taught”.
