Andrew joined The City Law School as a BPTC lecturer in 2010 having previously been a part time teaching fellow at the University of Exeter where he was a lecturer on the LPC. He teaches Civil Advocacy, ADR, Opinion Writing, Employment Law, Family Law and Drafting, and is also the co-ordinator for the teaching and delivery of the Civil Advocacy module as a whole.

Andrew was called to the Bar in 2004 where he undertook a full time private practice on the Western Circuit, specialising in Employment Law and General Common Law. He continues to have an active door tenancy with Rougemont Chambers in Exeter and frequently appears in courts and tribunals in London and on the Circuit.

Andrew is an experienced and friendly practitioner whose advocacy has received judicial commendation from Ward LJ, who stated in the Court of Appeal, "I wish to pay my tribute to Mr Worthley not only for his erudition but for the careful, sensible and charming way in which he has argued this application." Ward LJ, [2009] EWCA Civ 860

When not lecturing at City or appearing in Court, Andrew can be found giving occasional lectures in theology and on the interplay between law, criminal justice, ethics and theology in various academic settings in the UK. He is also a keen gigging musician and recording artist and enjoys sport, politics, theology, good coffee and literature.
