Sarah came to the law via a non-traditional route, having first worked in the insurance industry, studying for her undergraduate law degree on a part time basis whilst not only working full time but also studying for her insurance professional qualifications. She then attended the College of Law in Guildford achieving a distinction on the Legal Practice Course (LPC). On qualification as a solicitor, Sarah specialised in insurance defendant litigation, acting on behalf of several major insurance companies as well as local authorities, public bodies and NHS Trusts.
Sarah first began teaching in 2007 as an Associate Lecturer with the Open University, spending 8 years teaching on the LL.B (Hons) programme. Sarah continued to combine practice with her teaching until 2017 before making the switch to full time teaching in 2017. In addition to teaching law at undergraduate level, Sarah currently also teaches both on the LPC and BPTC as a visiting lecturer. She is a Fellow of the Chartered Insurance Institute and has previously been an examiner on the CII’s Insurance law module of their Diploma/Advanced Diploma qualifications. Sarah was a contributing author to the CII’s 2007 report ‘ Coping with Climate Change – Risks and Opportunities for Insurers’.
Sarah joins Exeter as a visiting lecturer in 2019.
