Lisa is module leader for Equity and Trusts Law. She joined the Department of Law as a lecturer in January 2014. Lisa taught previously at the University as a Graduate Teaching Assistant whilst, at the same time, continuing her doctoral research.
Lisa's research interests include privacy and technology law. She has a number of published works in these areas and has given conference papers in these areas at the annual SLSA, BILETA, Winchester and IAITL Conferences. In 2017, Lisa was an invited panel member for London Cycling Campaign's 29th seminar on autonomous vehicles held at the University of Westminster.
Lisa has also been a book reviewer for the Law Teacher Journal and has acted as a reviewer for a leading academic publisher. She is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and has been awarded a Learning and Teaching prize for use of technology.
My research is focused on the legal protection afforded to private information within the English legal system and the ways in which the protection afforded has been impacted by the growth of online communications and the generation, post web 2.0, of user generated content. My research assesses the effectiveness of the law in this context and I argue that UGC poses a challenge against which the current methodology of the courts in misuse of private information may be tested.
In terms of current research, this revolves around the regulation of autonomous (self-driving) vehicles, as well as the nature of online and other communications and the degree to which criminal law may be invoked to deal with the more culpable forms of undesirable online content.
Additionally, I have been awarded a research grant by LERN in order to evaluate the number and type of law PhDs undertaken in England and Wales.
