Martina Proctor

A Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, having initially been trained a common law lawyer, and subsequently earning UK postgraduate qualifications in business (MBA), law (LLM) and academic practice (PGCAPHE), I teach law. I am also engaged in connecting – researching & facilitating – student learning with their development.

Most seagulls don’t bother to learn more than the simplest facts of flight – how to get from shore to food.


For them –

It was not flight that mattered, but eating.
