Professor Fiona Leverick
Professor of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice, University of Glasgow
I am Professor of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice at the University of Glasgow. I have particular expertise in the prosecution of sexual offences, jury decision making and the prevention of miscarriages of justice. I was part of the team who undertook the Scottish Jury Research, a Scottish Government funded mock jury project that examined the way that juries make their decisions in criminal cases. I am co-author of the 4th edition of Sir Gerald Gordon’s The Criminal Law of Scotland (with Professor James Chalmers).
