For our first meeting of the new season, we are delighted to have Dr Oliver Quick, Reader in Law at Bristol Law School.

Oliver Quick obtained his LLB (Law and Politics) and his PhD from the University of Wales Cardiff. He was appointed as a Lecturer at Bristol in 2001 and as a Senior Lecturer in 2007.

He teaches undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Criminal Law, Criminal Justice, Medical Law and Public Health Law, and has published numerous articles in these fields. He is co-author (with Nicola Lacey and Celia Wells) of Reconstructing Criminal Law (CUP, 2010). He has carried out empirical research projects investigating how prosecutors and experts negotiate law and process in the context of the controversial crime of ‘medical manslaughter.’

Oliver has been a visiting scholar at the University of Western Australia (2006) and Boston University (2010). His monograph Regulating Patient Safety: the end of Professional Dominance was published by Cambridge University Press in 2017.
