About Angela King

Angela studied for her LLB (Hons) Law at Teesside, where she particularly enjoyed studying constitutional law – the relationship between the individual and the state, how the state operates and who holds the power. Linked to this, her 12,000-word dissertation looked at the impact of joining the European Union on the UK’s constitution.

Angela progressed to a full-time LLM European and International Law at Durham University. During this one-year master’s, she studied substantive European Union law, international human rights, and contemporary issues in international law. And her dissertation focused on the use of force in Kosovo.

In 2003 she started lecturing part time at Teesside in public law and the English legal system, increasing to full time in 2004. She now specialises in constitutional law, human rights and international criminal law.

Angela's research interests lie in particular in the areas of constitutional reform, police powers and the right to a fair trial.
