New Head and Deputy for School of Law
Tuesday 24 April 2012
Professor Indira Carr has been appointed as Head of the School of Law and Robert Jago will be taking up the new post of Deputy Head of School from 1 August.
Professor Carr joined the School of Law at the University of Surrey in 2007 having previously taught at the Universities of Warwick, Exeter, Kent and Middlesex. She is also an Honorary Visiting Professor at University College, London and will continue as the Associate Dean Research for the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law.
Professor Carr has an international reputation for her research in corruption and, with Professor David Goss, has established an interdisciplinary Corruption Research Group at Surrey which has drawn wide membership from academia, CSOs, international organisations and practitioners.
Robert Jago has been teaching at the School of Law since 2003 rising up from the post of associate lecturer to become a senior lecturer in 2010. Robert's research falls under the broad umbrella of exclusion and he has written about a number of groups in this regard including young people and gypsies. Robert also sits as a Justice of the Peace on the South West Surrey Bench.
The pair take up their new posts at an exciting time, over the last year the School of Law has climbed a significant number of places in the league tables, achieved excellent NSS results and record numbers of students are taking up the law professional training year. As Professor Carr commented, “leading the school into the future is an exciting challenge but I’m delighted that my predecessor, Professor Terry Desombre and the management team here at the School, have given me such a firm foundation to build on.”
