Institute of Law appoints new Director and Chief Executive

The Jersey Institute of Law has appointed the former Dean of one of Europe's largest law schools as its new Director and Chief Executive.

Professor Janine Griffiths-Baker, who most recently worked at Nottingham Law School, Nottingham Trent University, has more than 24 years' experience in higher education.

She has taught in the fields of criminal law, property law, the law of evidence and legal ethics, as well as supervising research students in these areas.

In 2015, Professor Griffiths-Baker was made a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Since 2010, she has also been a member of the International Advisory Board for the Journal of Legal Ethics.

Although her appointment was made with immediate effect, she will initially remain in the UK and work remotely due to the covid-19 travel restrictions in place and then relocate to the island as soon as practical.

“I am delighted that we have been able to secure someone with the standing and expertise that Janine will bring to the Institute," Stephen Baker, Chairman of the Board of Governors, said.

"She will help us further develop and grow the Institute and we are confident the Institute will go from strength to strength under her leadership.”

He also thanked Professor Griffiths-Baker's predecessor, Dr David Marrani, for his "substantial contribution to the Institute", wishing him well in his future career.
