Prof Elaine Hall

Professor

Department: Northumbria Law School

Professor Elaine Hall joined Northumbria School of Law as a Reader in legal education research in October 2013. She was previously Lecturer in Research Methods at Newcastle University where she was a member of the Centre for Learning and Teaching.  Her research career has spanned twenty years and more than thirty funded projects.  This research has been directed towards the experience of teaching and learning from the early years to old age, as curriculum-specific, metacognitive and professional practices. The diversity of context has produced a unifying theory of pedagogic enquiry, which focuses on the intent of the researcher, the power of research and pedagogic tools and the critical engagement of research networks. 

Her doctorate Enacting Change in Classrooms focuses on the potential for professional learning for educators in all contexts through enquiry processes.  Elaine was also a UKCP registered psychotherapist with a private clinical, supervision and teaching practice in Newcastle.  She holds a Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy from the University of Wales.

Elaine leads the Legal Education and Professional Skills Signature Research Area.

 Elaine is an Editor of the International Journal of Clinical Legal Education (IJCLE) and organises its annual conference. She is a Board member of the Association of Law Teachers and the Law Teacher journal.

She is also an Associate Editor for the International Journal of Education Research; Guest Editor for the International Journal of Research Methods in Education; and a regular reviewer for journals including British Educational Research Journal, Educational Review, Teachers and Teaching, Teacher Development and the European Journal of Psychology of Education.

Elaine is co-convener of Network 15: Research Partnership in Education within the European Educational Research Association.  She acts as external examiner for the University of Glasgow Practitioner enquiry programme and the Professional Doctorate in Health and Social Sciences at Queen Margaret University as well as conducting doctoral examinations at Glasgow, Durham, Sheffield and Middlesex.
