Colin King joins The Inner Temple

(17 November 2014)

An academic from the School of Law has been appointed an Academic Fellow of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple. Dr Colin King, has been selected, along with three other academics, to take up this prestigious three-year role.

The Inner Temple’s Academic Fellows Scheme, which was launched in 2009, aims to recognise the outstanding contribution of legal teaching and research of early to mid-career academics. It also aims to support their research and to build a stronger relationship between the Bar, judiciary and legal academia.

The Chief Executive of the Inner Temple, Patrick Maddams, said: “Debate and discussion is at the very heart of the legal world, both in practice and in academia. We welcome the opportunity to bring together practitioners and academics, whom we recognise for their outstanding contribution to teaching and research, in the law.  Our new Academic Fellows join a community of academic fellows and associate academic fellows from across England and Wales, who play an important role in the education of future legal practitioners.”
