Teresa is the careers manager at the University of Law, Leeds. She has taught law at undergraduate level for fourteen years. Her areas of teaching specialism are contract, tort, property and equity law. Prior to working in higher education, Teresa was a senior litigation executive in private practice, specialising in civil litigation. Teresa’s legal background enables her to transfer her working experience to the classroom so that subjects are taught within a relevant context and from a practical perspective. Working with young adults especially students new to university study is of particular interest to her and this has led her to undertake research by way of a doctorate in education which focuses on the transition of learning and teaching from school to university.
