Biographical Details:

Amanda was called to the Bar in 1996, as a scholar of The Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn. During her time at the Bar she was a tenant in common law chambers, 4 King's Bench Walk in the Temple; she practiced for 8 years in the areas of criminal law (both prosecuting and defending), family law and personal injury work.

In 2004 Amanda established the CPD training website www.legaltraining.co.uk, offering accredited online professional training to barristers, solicitors and other legal professionals; she writes training courses covering a range of practice areas (Family law, Criminal law, Property law and Civil law) as well as topics such as Social Media and the Law, Autism Awareness for legal professionals and Barristers' Complaints Handling. Amanda has also taught A-Level Law in local schools in the Reading and Wokingham area.

Amanda has been involved as a consultant to a psychology research project, "Access to Justice for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders" (www.childwitnesses.com), which is investigating witness skills in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Amanda has advised the team of psychologists in relation to witness-handling, practice and procedure for cross-examination, cross-examination protocols and the coding of cross-examination questions. In addition she has undertaken the cross-examination of a significant number of children (both with and without ASDs) via Skype as part of the research.

Amanda joined the School of Law in September 2015 as a sessional lecturer and is now a teaching fellow.
