(CNS Local Life): The Truman Bodden Law School (TBLS) has recently appointed two new lecturers. Scott Atkins will lecture on contract, commercial and trusts law for the law school’s undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Michael Bromby will lecture undergraduates on evidence and employment law. TBLS director Mitchell Davies said of the appointments, “We are fortunate to have recruited two such experienced law teachers and legal researchers to the Truman Bodden Law School.”

Atkins graduated from the University of Birmingham (UK) with a first class honours degree in law. He later qualified as a solicitor, specialising in property law. He left private practice, to pursue a career in academia, most recently becoming head of law at the University of Derby (UK).

Michael Bromby

Bromby studied law at the University of Edinburgh and joins TBLS from Glasgow Caledonian University (UK) as a reader in law. He previously worked in the Higher Education Academy, the UK body in charge of advising law schools on their learning and teaching strategy. He was also a summary criminal court judge in Scotland. His research interests include forensic evidence identification, eyewitness evidence and teaching methods.

In noting the timing of the appointments, Davies added, “Scott and Michael bring first-class teaching and research skills to the Law School and they join us at a particularly exciting time in the evolution of the school.

“The last six months witnessed the launch of two new postgraduate programmes, offered as awards of the University of Liverpool: the Master of Laws in International Finance and the postgraduate Diploma in International Finance. In the late summer, a new postgraduate affiliation with Oxford Brookes University was also agreed, leading to the Oxford Brookes Diploma in Legal Practice, to be awarded to successful Professional Practice Course candidates. It is expected that Scott and Michael will contribute to the teaching of these new programmes.”

We have created a new system to help us address questions we receive from the public for the press briefings. We are getting hundreds every day and it’s impossible to read and deal with them while the PB is in process as there are a lot of moving parts to being able to do the Zoom meeting, take notes and respond to their info in real time.

So we are asking people to send their questions each day BEFORE NOON to:

This will give us a chance to read, sort and consolidate the questions so that we get to the issues that people are most concerned about.

Thanks for your help. In the meantime the ones you have sent will be sorted and collated.
