LLB (London), ), LLM (UCL), PhD (York), PGCert (Open), PGDip (KCL), Barrister


I joined York Law School as a full time member of staff in August 2013 having spent a number of years tutoring while completing my PhD. I qualified as a barrister in 1991. I have previously worked at the University of Northumbria, where I was part of a team who developed and then delivered their Bar Vocational Course. I have also worked at the Inns of Court School of Law (now part of City University) and the University of Surrey.

I am Deputy Chair of Board of Studies at YLS.



I am currently completing my Doctorate in Legal History looking at judicial practice in national and regional courts during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and exploring judicial understanding of the concept of justice and ways in which such concepts impacted upon court practice.

My wider research interests include judicial and political attitudes across history and normative and procedural issues in criminal law and evidence as well as the court system generally.



Patrick currently teaches on the Legal Skills, Advanced Legal Skills, Key Themes in Criminal Justice, Criminal Law and Family Law modules in the York Law School as well as assisting in first year PBL programme.
