Mr James Greenwood-Reeves

Profile

I read BA Law at Queens' College, The University of Cambridge, graduating in 2013. I then worked in private legal practice for four years, specialising in Wills, trusts and estate planning. I still teach trusts and inheritance tax modules for the Society of Will Writers' College of Will Writing.

I joined the School of Law at the University of Leeds in 2017 to study MSc Security and Justice (graduation pending). I am now studying for my PhD in the sociolegal and constitutional theory of violent protest, supervised by Dr Conor O'Reilly and Dr Jen Hendry. By virtue of being awarded a Teaching and Research Scholarship, I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant, delivering seminars in Foundations of Law, and Law and Society modules.

Research interests

My PhD research focuses on violent protest. In particular, I am studying the democratic constitutional foundations for peaceful protest, and how these contrast to the prohibitions on violence in political protest, drawing upon jurisprudential, sociolegal and constitutional theory.

I also have research interests in security and justice, including security networks and surveillance.
