Personal profile

Jonathan Merritt has a first degree in law from Nottingham Trent University (NTU), a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from NTU, a Masters Degree in Criminology and Social Policy from the Open University and nearly 20 years experience teaching law and criminology.  He joined Leicester De Montfort School of Law in 2006 although he has taught on DMU programmes since 2004.  Having taught and published initially in the business law field, Jonathan specialised for a number of years in policing, being the lead on a number of projects to bring police training into the UK university sector and has written on police powers in the era of increased civilianisation.  Jonathan is now weaving all that experience into his teaching and writing on sports law, commencing a PhD in 2011 on regulating equestrianism and horse racing.
