About

Background

Professor Carl Stychin joined City, University of London as Dean of The City Law School in December 2012. After completing his initial legal training in Canada, he articled at a large corporate commercial firm in Toronto followed by a judicial clerkship for Chief Justice Brian Dickson at the Supreme Court of Canada. He studied for a Masters in Law at Columbia Law School, and was part of the Associates in Law Program, which gave him the opportunity to teach Legal Research and Writing to first year JD students.

Professor Stychin began his academic career in the United Kingdom at Keele University (Lecturer, 1992-96; Senior Lecturer, 1996-98). He joined the University of Reading in 1998 as a Professor of Law. In over fourteen years at Reading, he pursued a varied career in research and teaching, and also held several management posts (Head of the School of Law, 2001-03; Dean of the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences, 2003-05; Pro-Vice-Chancellor, 2005-08).

Professor Stychin is best known for his research on law, gender and sexuality, and he has published three monographs, co-edited three collections, and published numerous articles in the field. In addition, he has longstanding interests in tort law, law and popular culture, and he has edited a student 'text and materials' collection (now in its fourth edition, co-edited with Professor Linda Mulcahy) on Legal Methods and Systems. He is currently the editor of Social & Legal Studies: An International Journal, a role he has performed for many years.

Professor Stychin has a particular interest in professional regulation. He is a lay member of the General Chiropractic Council and he serves as lay Vice-Chair of the Qualifications Committee of the Bar Standards Board. In the past, he has served as one of two Chairs of validation panels for the Legal Practice Course on behalf of the Solicitors Regulation Authority. He is a former member of the Joint Academic Stage Board of the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority. Prior to his appointment to the General Chiropractic Council, Professor Stychin served as a non-Council lay member of its Education Committee.

In 2014, he was made a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in recognition of his contribution to the socio-legal study of gender and sexuality. In 2015, he was elected to the Executive of the Committee of Heads of University Law Schools, the representative body for UK law schools and their management.
