Research Interests

My research interests lie in the areas of regulatory crime and competition law. I am interested in all areas relating to the criminalisation of regulatory offences. More specifically, my research looks at the justifications for invoking criminal law sanctions in non-traditional areas, and the practical implications of criminalising "white collar crimes".

Teaching Interests

Luke's teaching interests lie in the area of regulatory crime, company law, competition law, criminal theory, and EU law.
Luke currently teaches on the following modules: (LA4005) Legal Environment of Business; (LA4901) Principles of Law; (LA4013/5021) Media Law; (LA4008) Company and Partnership Law.
