The City Law School this month welcomes a raft of new starters who will join the teaching staff on its market-leading professional and academic courses.

At the school’s Gray’s Inn Place site in central London, students on the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) will benefit from the arrival of three new lecturers. First, Nicola Matthews joins from nearby Staple Inn Chambers in London, where she was a tenant with a general practice that includes civil and criminal law. 

In addition, Romilly Edge, a criminal practitioner with family practice experience, moves to City from St Ive’s Chambers in Birmingham, while Andrew Worthley joins from Exeter-based Rougemont Chambers, where he ran a civil practice including employment and family law.

Commenting on the trio of new arrivals, BPTC Course Director Stuart Sime said: “We’re delighted to welcome all three new members of staff who will be a great acquisition for the academic team here.”

Meanwhile, Philippa Watson, previously a visiting lecturer, has been appointed a Professor in Law on the International Commercial Law LLM course while Danae Azaria has joined City as a lecturer and will teach on the same course.

Elliot Schatzberger, also a former visiting lecturer, has taken on a wider role on both the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and LLB courses at City. Elliot also teaches at a number of other institutions around the capital including Cass Business School.

Marta Iljadica has taken up the reins from the departing Cian Murphy as Research Fellow at The City Law School. Marta will spend one year in this prestigious role and joins us from King’s College.  Finally, Enrico Bonadio will also join City from Dundee in January 2011 and will teach intellectual property as a lecturer on the LLB course.
