Dr Michael Randall

Teaching Fellow


Personal statement

I am the coordinator for Banking Law and the English Law of Tort classes at UG level, and Financial Regulation & Compliance and Financial Crime at PG Level. I also teach on the undergraduate Law, Film and Popular Culture class. In January 2020, I became the 4th Year Honours Coordinator. Until January 2020, I was the Senior Tutor in the law school, with responsibility for undergraduate pastoral care and wellbeing. I was the Course Director for the LLM Law & Finance programme from 2016-19. I am also currently the Associate Dean for Student Experience at Faculty level. My research interests lie in Financial Law and concern regulating behaviour in the financial sector through taxation. My PhD thesis concerned the European Commission’s Proposal to introduce a tax on financial transactions occurring within the European Union, using it as a case study to assess legal theories of integration. I have also written in other areas of taxation, including the 'Tampon Tax'. In addition to my core teaching interests, I am also interested in legal education, looking to build upon my experience of pastoral care throughout my time at Strathclyde Law School. Prior to arriving at Strathclyde in 2016 I completed a Law and French (LLB) (2007-2011) and European Legal Studies LLM (2011-2012) both at Cardiff University, including an Erasmus year at the Université Picardie Jules Verne, Amiens, France (2009-10) during my undergraduate degree where I completed the 3rd Year French Public Law Licence. I subsequently undertook a PhD at the University of Leeds (2012-2016).
