Research and related activities

I am co-author of OUP title Family Law: Text, Cases, and Materials with Rob George and Sonia Harris-Short, 4th edition, published in August 2019.

I acted as research consultant to the Law Commission on its Matrimonial Property, Needs and Agreements project, and worked for the Family Justice Council on a project drafting guidance for litigants in person and for judges in financial remedy cases on divorce. I have consulted for the New Zealand Law Commission at various stages of its major Relationship Property project.  I was a core member of the large inter-disciplinary team that produced FJC-endorsed guidance in relation to the treatment of Pensions on Divorce: see www.nuffieldfoundation.org/pensions-divorce-interdisciplinary-working-group. I am currently involved in the development of the Financial Remedies Court pilot, led by Mostyn J. I act as an academic consultant on financial remedy and other family law appeals, most recently for the successful legal teams for the wives in Wyatt v Vince [2015] UKSC 14 and Work v Gray [2017] EWCA Civ 270, and for the husband in Owens v Owens [2018] UKSC 41.

Empirical research:

In 2010, I completed a one-year empirical study of the operation of the new cohabitation laws in Scotland with Professor Fran Wasoff and Dr Enid Mordaunt, University of Edinburgh, funded by the Nuffield Foundation. http://www.crfr.ac.uk/researchprojects/rp_cohabitation.html Our findings were referred to in the Supreme Court judgments in Gow v Grant [2012] UKSC 29. 

I was a member of the large team working on an MoJ project on self-represented parties in private law family proceedings (led by Prof Liz Trinder), report published in November 2014: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/litigants-in-person-in-private-family-law-cases

I participated as a legal consultant to a project on public attitudes to child support law, using the British Attitude Survey (as consultant member of research team with Bryson, Ellman and McKay): http://www.nuffieldfoundation.org/public-views-child-support; and was a member of the multi-disciplinary team in a project led by Caroline Bryson scoping the need for a dedicated new survey focusing on issues related to family separation: http://www.nuffieldfoundation.org/data-understand-lives-separated-families

I was co-principal with Dr Emma Hitchings (Bristol) on a project examining the settlement of financial disputes on divorce.  http://www.nuffieldfoundation.org/final-settlements-financial-disputes-following-divorce  The first findings from this study, focused on the "how, when and why" of settlement were published in November 2013 at http://www.bristol.ac.uk/law/research/researchpublications/2013/assemblingthejigsawpuzzle.pdf  The second phase of the project examined the settlements reached: briefing paper was published in June 2018 at: http://www.nuffieldfoundation.org/news/%E2%80%98big-money%E2%80%99-cases...

Comparative family law and policy:

I have a strong interest in the comparative and international aspects of family law, co-teaching a specialist LLM paper on Comparative Family Law & Policy, and co-founded the research centre Cambridge Family Law in 2016. Together with the Organising Committee of the Commission for European Family Law, Jens Scherpe and I hosted the highly successful fourth conference of the Commission in April 2010 on the future of family property in Europe. My work on the domestic and private international law aspects of marital property agreements was cited in argument before the Supreme Court in Radmacher v Granatino. I advised the New Zealand Law Commission during its major Relationship Property review in 2017-19.

Socio-legal and inter-disciplinary work:

As a longstanding member of the Cambridge Socio-Legal group, I have an interest in inter-disciplinary work, and have co-ordinated two book / workshop projects under the aegis of the Group. I am co-editor, with Rebecca Probert (Warwick) of a volume of social science essays bearing on the themes of money, property, relationships and separation. The aim of the project was to explore the empirical basis for the principles currently underpinning financial provision on divorce and property division on separation of cohabiting relationships, to see what light non-legal disciplines can cast on this difficult area for the law.  In 2015, I co-edited a new volume on marriage rites and rights with Rebecca Probert and Perveez Mody (Social Anthropology), and am currently co-editing a new project on Divorce wtih Daniel Monk (Birkbeck) and Rebecca Probert (Exeter).

Prior to Cambridge: undergraduate law degree at Nottingham (top graduating student), LLM at Cambridge. First teaching post at Christ Church and Lincoln College, Oxford.
