On 23 November 2015, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Andrew Hamilton, presented the 2014 -2015 teaching awards at a ceremony held at Rhodes House. The teaching awards scheme is coordinated by the Oxford Learning Institute and recognises teaching excellence across the university.

Three project grants were awarded to Law Faculty projects and details of the three projects can be found below:

Dr Ben Bradford, Departmental Lecturer in Criminology


Dealing with research in difficult places

This project is a series of workshops and group sessions to provide staff and students with the intellectual and emotional tools to deal with issues raised by difficult and/or dangerous research, and it will also provide a therapeutic space where issues and challenges faced can be discussed. The project benefits from the professional input of a psychotherapist, Ms Camille Stack.

Lucinda Ferguson, Associate Professor of Family Law

Ms Lucinda Ferguson has been awarded this grant to provide a buy-out for her to undertake the Post-Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

Oxford Human Rights Hub

Professor Sandra Fredman, Dr Meghan Campbell, Mrs Zoe Davis-Heaney, Dr Laura Hilly.

This project will contribute to the ongoing work of the blog, will facilitate the production of a second edition blog anthology, and will develop a new series of eight podcasts on various topics in human rights law.
