Criminal Law

This course is a core component of the LL.B and introduces students to criminal law including case law and legislation. I acted as course organiser and occasional tutor on this course at the University of Stirling in 2012.


Business Entities and Commercial Law

These courses, aimed at second year undergraduate students, covers all important aspects of commercial and company law as well as agency, partnership, intellectual property, competition law, carriage and sale of goods, insurance, diligence and insolvency. I acted as tutor on these courses at the University of Edinburgh from 2007 until 2010.


Business Law

This course, which I tutored at the University of Edinburgh from 2009 until 2010 is intended for second year undergraduate students of accounting, economics and business, and it deals with the main areas of law relevant to these disciplines. The aim is to give students an understanding of the general principles of these branches of law and, so far as practicable, to set the law in its modern commercial context. It is an introductory course with emphasis on general principles.


Delict

The course seeks to develop knowledge and understanding of the key rules/concepts in the Scots Law of Delict. Particular attention is given to the law of negligence and leading areas of statutory liability. I acted as tutor for first year undergraduate students at the University of Edinburgh from 2007 until 2008.


European Labour Law                         

The course is designed to introduce LL.M students to EU Social Policy, EU Labour Law and the overall importance of European Social Policy to the European Programme. It includes an overview of a range of topics which comprise the subject of EU labour law, including EU equal treatment law, EU equal pay law, family-friendly policies, the protection of part-time and fixed-term employees, the regulation of working time, the safeguards for employees on the restructuring of an undertaking and collective labour law (such as the protection of the right to strike - and the limits on such a principle). I led the seminars on collective labour law at the University of Edinburgh from 2008 until 2011.


European Union Law

The course introduces undergraduate students to the constitutional and institutional structure of the European Union, as well as substantive EU law (that is, primarily, the law of the internal market). I have taught European Union Law at the Universities of Edinburgh and Stirling.


Labour Law

This is an Honours level course which is designed for third or fourth year LL.B. students. It aims to provide an in-depth study of selected aspects of Labour Law in the UK and to promote advanced knowledge and understanding of the theory, concepts and rules of UK Labour Law in their socio-economic, institutional and historical frameworks. I acted as course organisor for and lecturer on this course at the University of Stirling from 2012 until now. I have also regularly taught Collective Labour Law at the University of Edinburgh since 2008.
