Biography Phil's first degree was in law and his postgraduate research was primarily concerned with bioethics. The University of Sheffield awarded him a PhD for this research in 2006. He subsequently published a monograph, Competence and Vulnerability in Biomedical Research (Springer, 2008), based on his doctoral work. Since then, Phil's research has been focused on questions of ethics, human rights and social justice in mental health theory, policy and law, most recently in public mental health ethics. This is also reflected in his teaching interests, as is his commitment to a socio-legal and critical approach to legal education.
