(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.”
