Dr Sue Lazer
LLB Hons (Leeds), Solicitor, LLM (Huddersfield), PhD (Huddersfield), FHEA
I completed my LLB (Hons) at Leeds University and proceeded to the Law Society Finals at the College of Law. I started training as an articled clerk in 1986 following which I was admitted as a solicitor and worked in private practice and local government.
I moved into higher education working at the University of Huddersfield within the law school teaching a variety of both legal practice (LPC) and academic subjects with a focus on litigation and evidence. I became law subject group leader and director of the legal advice clinic. During my time at Huddersfield I was admitted as a fellow of the higher education academy and completed both my LLM and PhD. Publications have been on aspects of litigation and evidence. I have also supervised masters students towards completion of the LLM on areas of professional practice. I have been appointed to numerous external examiner roles on courses regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and undertaken several returns to practice.
I am now a tutor at YLS.
