Hannah joined the City Law School as a lecturer on the Bar Professional Training Course in September 2014 having previously taught part- time on the BPTC at the University of Law. Hannah teaches Criminal Evidence, Ethics and is the deputy co-ordinator for the Criminal Litigation module.
Prior to joining the City Law School, Hannah practiced from St Philips Chambers in the West Midlands. Having spent the first years of tenancy undertaking a mixture of work, Hannah developed a very busy family practice, especially in Children Act work. Hannah regularly represented vulnerable clients and those who had limited cognitive functioning in care proceedings at all stages of the case. In addition to her Family Law work, Hannah was seconded to Birmingham City Council for three months to develop her experience in Regulatory Law.
Having always been interested in human rights and international criminal law, in 2013, Hannah took a six month sabbatical and went to live and work in New Orleans, Louisiana. She was based with the charity Amicus which assist lawyers representing clients on death row. Hannah had daily contact with the clients and was tasked with trial preparation including preparatory work for jury selection as well as research for regulatory based arguments. Hannah is still involved with Amicus now.
