Lisa’s research interests lie in the field of Property Law, using empirical research methodology to explore the housing possession process.

Lisa graduated from the University of Hull in 1993 with a LLB (Hons) Law degree (first class) followed in 1999 by a PhD which examined the mortgage possession process in practice. During her doctoral studies she taught at the University of Hull (UoH) and was appointed to the post of Lecturer in 1997. She progressed through Senior Lecturer to Reader before her appointment at Southampton. She has taught a range of subjects including Land Law, Equity and Trusts and Company Law and has experience of introducing innovative modules such as the Clinic on Evictions and Repossessions. She was awarded Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in December 2020 and has won awards including ‘Best Supervisor Taught’ at the UoH Student-Led Teaching and Support Awards in 2019.

Lisa’s research interests lie in the field of Property Law, using empirical research methodology to explore the housing possession process. She has a consistent record of publishing outputs in some of the highest ranked journals including the Modern Law review, Journal of Law and Society and the Conveyancer and Property Lawyer. She has also a sustained and consistent record of research grant capture including awards from the Nuffield Foundation, British Academy, and ESRC. Her most recent grant involved her as PI on a £45k ESRC funded project. Running from April-December 2021, the project examined the court system’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic in housing possession cases. Working with key actors within the process and combining a review of social science literature with primary data obtained from occupiers, landlords, legal practitioners and debt advisors, the project offered a unique assessment of the temporary initiatives introduced within the court system in England and Wales. The hope is that the project will offer a direct route to impact as a result of the involvement of the Ministry of Justice, Shelter, the Housing Law Practitioners’ Association and the Institute of Money Advisers as well as others.

Her next research project involves a £90k grant from the Standard Life Foundation to investigate the issue of occupier (non)engagement in the arrears and possession process. The project will run from April 2022 for 18 months.
