Sarah Greer is the Deputy Vice Chancellor and Professor of Law at the University of Worcester. She has taught Property Law for many years, co-authoring Land Law Directions (Oxford University Press, 5th Ed 2016). Her research interests lie in issues around cohabitation and trusts of the family home and she has published widely on this subject.
Most recently, she has been proud to be a part of the Women’s Legal Landmarks Project. Sarah is a barrister and a National Teaching Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Together with her colleague Chris Monaghan, in 2016 she set up a Women’s Legal History Project at the University of Worcester, in which undergraduate law students research early women lawyers and #helpful men, visiting archives to discover the hidden stories of the inspirational first women legal pioneers and the remarkable men who helped them. Some of their research has been included in the First Hundred Years Digital Museum, for example articles on Rosina Harris
, Ann Goddard
and Lord Robert Cecil
. Students have also presented their research at public seminars and later this year the Women’s Legal History project team will be presenting at their first UK academic conference.
