Personal Statement

Jonathan Brown joined the law school as a lecturer in Scots private law in August 2019, having previously held the post of lecturer in law at Aberdeen's Robert Gordon University (2017-2019). Jonathan considers himself to be a private law generalist and he has a keen interest in Scottish legal history. His recent publications have included an examination of Scots law as it pertains to the withdrawal of medical treatment from terminally ill infants, an investigation into the effect of the 'classic' definition of 'slavery' on the Human Trafficking and Exploitation (Scotland) Act 2015, and a comment on the Defamation and Malicious Publications (Scotland) Bill 2019. 

As a result of his LLM degree in advocacy, he is very supportive of student mooting and is keen to encourage this pursuit at Strathclyde.
