My first employment was as an adult education outreach worker in Glasgow, and part-time academic literacies tutor at Glasgow University. After a law degree I worked for seven years as lecturer then senior lecturer at Glasgow Caledonian University Law Dept, focusing on curriculum development and use of IT in legal learning. In 1999 I was appointed to the newly-formed Glasgow Graduate School (GGSL), University of Strathclyde, first as senior lecturer then professor. There, I was Co-Director of Legal Practice Courses, and Director of the innovative Learning Technologies Development Unit, as well as Director of the two-year, JISC/UKCLE-funded project, SIMPLE (SIMulated Professional Learning Environment). In 2010 I was invited to join Northumbria Law School as Professor of Legal Education, and in 2013 appointed to a professorial post at the Australian National University. Currently I spend five months on campus at ANU, seven months in the UK (Glasgow and Orkney), where I live with my wife Nicola.
