I am a non practising Barrister, having practised in Ireland for a period of almost ten years. I moved into English language teaching and worked as a teacher preparing students for all of the main English language exams including the TOEIC, TOEFL, ILETS and the Cambridge suite of exams before working as Director of Studies.

I have an involvement in developing materials for the International Legal English Certificate examination and currently develop and deliver bespoke training programs internationally in language and legal skills training for international student lawyers, qualified lawyers, members of the judiciary, ambassadors, members of the diplomatic corps and those having an involvement with aspects of the legal profession.

I lecture in Universities on Legal English for Academic Purposes and cross cultural legal skills training, and I work on programs in Global Clinical Legal Education.

I am a qualified civil and commercial mediator and have post graduate qualifications in development studies, training trainers and project management.
