The Institute of Law has appointed a University of Wolverhampton Dean with more than 30 years' experience in higher education as its new Dean and CEO.

Micéal Barden, who has taught Law at undergraduate and postgraduate level across six UK universities, will start his new role on 14 February.

Following early experience as a researcher with the Human Rights Commission in Northern Ireland and the Law Commission for England and Wales, Mr Barden started teaching Law.

He eventually became Head of Manchester Law School at Manchester Metropolitan University, where he spent seven years, before becoming Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Business and Social Sciences at the University of Wolverhampton, where he currently has direct oversight of the Business and Law Schools.

Mr Barden also has experience in curriculum development and validation of law programmes as well as being an experienced external examiner.

"I am absolutely delighted to be joining the Institute of Law, Jersey," he commented.

"I look forward to working alongside the excellent team locally and using my experience in legal education to further enhance the programmes and stature of the Institute, and guarantee its status as the leading offshore centre for legal learning."
