Newcastle Law School

Staff Profile

Dame Vera Baird QC

  • Visiting Professor

Following Ms Baird’s participation in the School’s Inspirational Women of the Law event held in March 2015 (, where she opened the event and was featured in the portrait exhibition (on display in the School), she will support the work of the school in all three primary areas of activity (research, teaching and engagement). 

This presents an excellent opportunity for staff and students alike to learn from Ms Baird’s wealth of experience as a barrister, MP, Government minister, and PCC, and from her expertise in the fields of public law and criminal law.
