Academic Staff

Birmingham Law School’s academic staff are nationally and internationally recognised leaders in teaching, pedagogical innovation, and legal research. Our staff is highly international, and we are proud of the diversity of approaches, scholarship, teaching, and backgrounds that are represented in our faculty.

Members of the faculty are frequently engaged by governments, the media, NGOs, and the private sector, bringing their academic expertise to bear outside of the lecture and seminar rooms of the School. Contact details are available on the individual profile pages.
