Research at Leeds Beckett
About Robin Bennett
Robin joined Leeds Law School in 2017 as a Graduate Teaching Assistant. Prior to joining the Law School, Robin obtained his LLB from the University of Bradford and worked as a Barristers clerk at a leading set in the North of England.
Robin is currently teaching Public Law and UK Anti-Terrorism and Policy and has previously taught Contract Law, Tort Law and Business Law & Ethics.
Robin combines his role as a GTA with studying for Ph.D. His Ph.D. seeks to investigate the impact of the statutory Prevent duty on legal academics in university law schools throughout England & Wales. Robin hopes that his doctoral research will have an impact on both university and government policy regarding the implementation of the Prevent duty in Higher Education.
Robin’s research interests predominantly lie in the fields of Terrorism, Counter-Terrorism and Legal Education.
Robin also sits on the committee for the Association of Law Teachers as an Early Career representative. He has recently organised the inaugural ‘ALT Early Career Symposium’ which is to be held at Cloth Hall Court, Leeds, during September 2019. The symposium aims to bring together experienced academics and those new to teaching law to share best practice and develop excellence in legal education.
