After graduating from Kent University, Sarah spent a “gap” year away from academic life. During this time, she worked partly as a volunteer at Stockton on Tees Law Centre, at times representing clients with families involved in the Cleveland Child Abuse cases and attending the Cleveland Child Abuse Inquiry, and partly for the Ministry of Defence at an USAFE base in Cambridgeshire. Sarah returned to studying, and after completing her LLM at Exeter University, specialising in European Law, she was offered a tutorship there, with her chosen area of UK constitutional law. Sarah worked at Exeter in the Law Faculty until 1995, lecturing, tutoring and supervising dissertations for both undergraduates and postgraduates. In September 1995, she followed her subject areas and an offer of teaching human rights law to the University of Northampton. Since being at Northampton, Sarah has expanded her teaching and research interests further into human rights law and substantive EC Law. Her interests in all things European have also led her over the years to be involved in taking various student trips to institutions of the EU and Council of Europe.
