A Yorkshire based employment law expert has been appointed as a visiting lecturer at the University of Law (ULaw).
Charlotte Geesin, head of employment law and business immigration at Howarths, will teach employment law to students at the university’s Sheffield and Leeds campuses, in addition to delivering business modules and professional skills courses, including the recently introduced Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE).
Ms Geesin said: “Lecturing is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I was inspired by some of the tutors on my own Legal Practice Course some fifteen years ago, and their passion for their subject has been something that has stayed with me.
“This year, I pass the ten-year Post-Qualified Experience mark and celebrate ten years at Howarths. After experiencing an in-house legal environment and spending the last decade advising business clients, I feel I am now in a position where I can start giving back to the next generation of law students.
“I think it is so important to share knowledge and offer support not only to peers, but to those who want to learn, and I feel that I have a lot to give.”
Gavin Howarth, managing director at Howarths, said: “Encouraging our team to share their know-how is something we’re huge advocates of at Howarths.
“As we become the advisor of choice for many larger and established brands across Yorkshire and beyond and advise on increasingly complex and challenging employment law scenarios, Charlotte’s visiting lecturer role will also support our wider employment law team to continually refine and develop the technical legal knowledge that underpins all our employment law advice. This will undoubtedly increase the value we can add to our clients.
“We actively support the whole team to pursue their personal goals alongside their professional careers through initiatives including truly flexible working, so naturally we’re delighted that Charlotte has been able to fulfil her ambition to become a visiting lecturer at ULaw.”
