Graham Gee

Professor of Public Law, University of Sheffield

I joined Sheffield as professor of public law in September 2015 after seven years at the University of Birmingham. Much of my teaching and research is focused on the changing nature and character of the UK constitution, with some of my most recent research examining changes to the governance, leadership and selection of the judiciary in England and Wales. My work on this has been cited by, amongst others, the Lord Chief Justice, the Chief Justice of Canada, the Ministry of Justice, the Judicial Appointments Commission and the House of Lords Constitution Committee. Before pursuing an academic career, I qualified as a solicitor at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in London. In 2016, I sat (at the invitation of the Lord Chancellor) on the panel that recommended candidates for selection as the UK judge on the European Court of Human Rights.
