A former practising barrister, associate professor and designer of the Bar Professional Training Course, Nigel Waddington is a Senior Lecturer in civil practice at The City Law School, City University London.
Nigel gained his MSc degree from the University of Surrey and initially worked in clinical research for the development of heart drugs. He studied law at Birmingham University and was called to the Bar by Middle Temple in 1992. He practised at the chambers of John Cherry QC at 8, Stone Buildings (now Lamb Chambers, Temple, where he is a door tenant). In a busy practice, Nigel gained extensive experience in both criminal and civil courts, eventually specialising in personal injury litigation, exploiting his training in the biological sciences.
Nigel has supplied consultancy services to the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys and to the Patent Examination Board in its development of professional qualifications for patent attorneys. As an IATC-accredited advocacy trainer he has worked as an external assessor for international law firm Norton Rose LLP on its in-house advocacy program.
As an educator Nigel has written extensively for the University of Law, contributing to course texts and scripting online courtroom training exercises. He is a visiting lecturer at Goldsmith's College, Morley College, and Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
