Biography

Stephen Levett
BA Politics (Dunelm), PGCE (Secondary Education), Solicitor, FHEA

Senior Lecturer in Professional Practice

After initially training as a secondary school teacher and working abroad, I retrained as a solicitor and joined the Government Legal Service in Whitehall. Here I handled litigation for government bodies ranging from the Prison Service to the Forestry Commission.

Deciding to return to teaching I joined the (now) University of Law where I set up and ran its first Student Law Clinic. I also instigated its first Streetlaw programmes, as well as a publicly funded legal literacy project based in Sth,Yorkshire and partnerships with law firms and voluntary organisations.

As a result I have helped law students provide legal advice and information in schools, prisons and community organisations.

Whilst at ULAW I held a variety of senior management posts including Deputy Director of its York Centre.

In 2012 I joined the University of Sunderland as the Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Business. Law and Tourism with responsibility for programme development and student recruitment across the Faculty.

In 2016 I was appointed Director of Clinical Legal Education at King's College London and was responsible for founding its first student legal clinic.
