Ms Imogen Moore


Imogen joined the University of Bristol Law School in 2016, having previously worked at the Universities of Reading, Exeter and Birmingham. Before commencing her academic career Imogen practiced as a barrister, specialising in Chancery-Commercial work, particularly insolvency law.

She is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and Associate of the Bristol Institute of Learning and Teaching (BILT). Her recently published book for prospective and current law students, 'The Successful Law Student: An insider's guide to studying law' (Oxford, 2018, with Craig Newbery-Jones) explores all aspects of the law student experience and challenges the concept of success in this context. She is also the author of Q&A Company Law (Oxford, 2016, new edition forthcoming) which combines her interest in company law with her love of teaching and interest and expertise in developing assessment skills. Imogen's interest in higher education and pedagogy, particularly in the areas of student engagement, assessment and feedback, and transition to university study, has seen her present papers on supporting student learning, student voice in transition and beyond, and feedback policy and practice within and beyond the University of Bristol. As BILT Associate she is further exploring issues within the broad areas of assessment, student engagement, and transition.

Imogen's main interests in both teaching and research lie in Company Law, Corporate Insolvency and Trusts Law, with a particular interest in the obligations and responsibilities of company directors in times of financial difficulty, a point of intersection between the three subjects. She recently presented at an Insolvency Lawyers Association (South West) training event on challenging payments to shareholders through unlawful return of capital, while her chapter (co-written with Dr Onyeka Osuji) in Corporate Governance in Developing and Emerging Markets: Debates, Models and New Institutional Economics, eds Ngwu, Osuji & Stephen, (Routledge, 2016) explored the role of director disqualification as a tool of corporate governance. She is currently researching the intersection of trusts and company law in limitation of liability.

Imogen is currently Director of Education in the Law School and Unit Co-ordinator for LAWD30120 Trusts. She also teaches on the LAWD30120 Trusts and LAWD20037 Company Law units and supervises undergraduate and postgraduate reseach projects and dissertations.
