Meet the Junior Deans!

Meet the Junior Deans!


















"Hello, I'm a second-year DPhil student at the Faculty of Law. I'm researching the fairness and equality implications of the use of human enhancement technologies. Before coming to St. Benet's as the Junior Dean, I read for the BCL at Exeter College, and taught law in India. 

I'm deeply interested in human rights, gender issues, ethics, and the impact of emerging technologies. I also dabble in poetry and have performed my pieces in both Oxford and India. I enjoy acrylic painting, browsing charity shops, dog watching in Univ parks, going for long walks, and meditation. 

I hope I will be able to contribute positively to your life at St. Benet's. I'm always available for a chat over a cup of hot chocolate or coffee - whatever you prefer! Please feel free to get in touch for anything at all."

“Hi, my name is Samuel and I am a Jamaican postgraduate student in my second year at Oxford. Last year, I completed a BCL (Bachelor of Civil Law) at Balliol College, specializing in international and commercial law. This year I am studying on the MBA (Master in Business Administration) with a focus on impact investments and finding financial ways to improve the Caribbean region.

Prior to coming to the UK, I worked as a qualified lawyer in the Caribbean. I taught undergraduate law in Jamaica and also worked as a Judicial Counsel in Trinidad at the Caribbean Court of Justice. There I assisted in matters of human rights, international, criminal, civil and land law. 

In my spare time I enjoy playing and watching a variety of sports, including water polo, swimming, rugby, basketball and football. I also enjoy watching movies and tv shows and spending time with friends. 

I am very much looking forward to working at St. Benet’s this year and encourage you to reach out at any point. Whether for a walk, lunch or a drink, I am happy to speak and assist wherever possible.”
