“As an alumnus of the university who has spent several years in the industry and later returned as a lecturer at ULaw, Matthew has the right experience and knowledge to further our commitment toward improving opportunities for students as well as enhancing our connections with business.”

Tomlinson said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as dean of The University of Law in Leeds. I look forward to working in partnership with Yorkshire’s legal and business communities in providing our expertise in legal and professional training.”

“The University of Law has unique experience as the longest-established legal education provider in the country, experience that is invaluable to the legal market. I look forward to working to develop this further as Dean of the Leeds campus.”
