Teaching

My main teaching interests are in Medical law and bioethics, as well as aspects of legal and political philosophy, especially as they pertain to state regulation of science, medicine, and biotechnological innovation.

For over a decade I have been teaching across different areas. This has included Introduction to Medical Law, Introduction to Bioethics, Legal methods and Systems, Medicine, Technology, Morals, and the Law, and Philosophical Bioethics.

This teaching has been to diverse groups of students from law to medical students, as well as legal and health care professionals. It has spanned both undergraduate and postgraduate courses often in the role of course unit director. While at the University of Manchester I also spent some time as the Programme Director for the MA in Health Care Ethics and Law by Distance Learning.

I have also given occasional lectures on bioethics to undergraduates in the Faculty of Life Sciences in the School of Pharmacy on the ethics of prescribing. In addition, I have previously been involved in the teaching of medical students in the clinical setting and at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine on ethical issues in tropical medicine.
