Dr Gauri Sinha

Lecturer in Law


I am currently the module leader for Contract Law (Levels 4 and 5) and previously have been the module leader for Commercial Law (Level 5).

I hold a PhD specialising in Anti-Money Laundering Compliance from City University, London where I have previously taught on the Contract Law module.

I also consult on Anti-Money Laundering issues, and my current project entails advising the Government of Jamaica on financial sanctions and asset freezing related to weapons proliferation. Prior to joining Kingston, I was working at Pricewaterhouse Coopers as a Senior Associate in the Forensic department where I consulted several global banks and commercial organisations. In addition, I have worked with the World Bank as a financial crime specialist, to design a 'Know Your Customer' security framework for a carbon-trading platform.
