Dr. Lisa Collingwood

BSc (Hons), LLB, MA, PhD, FHEA
Senior Lecturer
Law School

Room 1006, Kenry House

0208 417 9000 Ext: 65210


Lisa is module leader for Equity and Trusts Law. She joined the law school as a lecturer on the LLB and PGDL programmes in January 2014.  Lisa taught previously at the University as a Graduate Teaching Assistant whilst, at the same time, continuing her doctoral research. 

Lisa's research interests include privacy and technology law.  She has a number of published works in these areas and has given conference papers in these areas at the annual SLSA, BILETA, and IAITL Conferences.  Lisa has also been a book reviewer for the Law Teacher Journal and has acted as a reviewer for a leading academic publisher.  Lisa is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and was awarded a Learning and Teaching prize in 2015 for use of technology.

Research Interest(s)

Research is focused on the legal protection afforded to private information within the English legal system and the ways in which the protection afforded has been impacted by the growth of online communications and the generation, post web 2.0, of user generated content.  Lisa's research assesses the effectiveness of the law in this context, arguing that UGC poses a challenge against which the current methodology of the courts in misuse of private information may be tested. Current research involves the issue of regulation of autonomous vehicles, as well as the nature of online and other communications and the degree to which criminal law may be invoked to deal with the more culpable forms of undesirable online content.

Additionally, Lisa has been awarded a research grant by LERN in order to evaluate the number and type of law PhDs undertaken in England and Wales.
