Biography

Fiona Leverick has been the Professor of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice at the University of Glasgow since 2013. She joined the Law School in 2007 as a senior lecturer, having previously worked at the University of Aberdeen. She is currently (jointly with James Chalmers) REF Champion for the School of Law. 

Fiona Leverick’s research interests lie in the areas of criminal law, criminal procedure, criminal evidence and criminal justice. She is currently undertaking a major study of mock jury decision making for the Scottish Government (with Ipsos MORI Scotland, James Chalmers and Vanessa Munro), which will report in 2019. Other recent research projects include Resorting to Crime: The Practice of Criminalisation (a project investigating patterns of criminal offence creation from the 1950s to the present day) and Post-Corroboration Safeguards (a project exploring the causes of wrongful conviction and the safeguards that might be necessary to introduce in Scots law following the abolition of the requirement for corroboration in criminal cases). 

Fiona Leverick has authored three books on criminal law: The fourth edition of Gerald Gordon’s The Criminal Law of Scotland (with James Chalmers, SULI/W. Green, 2017); Killing in Self-Defence (Oxford University Press, 2006); and Criminal Defences and Pleas in Bar of Trial (with James Chalmers, SULI/W. Green, 2006). She is happy to supervise research students in any aspect of criminal law, criminal evidence, criminal justice or criminal procedure. 

More information about Fiona Leverick and her ongoing and completed research projects can be found on the Glasgow criminal law and criminal justice web pages.

Research interests

I am interested in all aspects of criminal law, criminal justice, criminal evidence and criminal procedure, but especially interested in the prevention of and responses to wrongful conviction, jury decision making, and modern and historical patterns of criminal offence creation. Further details about my past and ongoing research projects in these areas can be found on the Glasgow criminal law and criminal justice web pages.

I would be happy to supervise research students in any of these areas. Please do get in touch if you wish to discuss a proposal with me.
