Kris Lines joined Aston Law as a Teaching Fellow in April 2016. Before this, he studied for an LLB in Law and Business Studies at the University of Birmingham. He has also completed an MPhil (Law) and an MA in Higher and Professional Education, obtaining a distinction.
After Law School, Kris trained as a chartered accountant in a leading city firm, before spending ten years at Staffordshire University where he worked most recently as an Associate Professor of Sports Law, University Teaching Excellence Fellow and Chair of the Business, Education and Law Faculty Ethics committee.
His research interests are primarily based around sports and medical negligence, anti-doping, informed consent, the regulation of sport (in particular its definition) and ambush marketing. Previously, Kris competed on the National circuit as an elite trampolinist, however a shoulder injury forced his retirement as an active competitor. He now coaches gymnastics, trampolining and cheerleading in his spare time and is a tutor for British Gymnastics. Kris has written for a number of leading international sports law journals and media outlets. He also regularly presents papers at conferences in this area.
Kris is the Module Leader for the Law of Torts. He has also co-founded the blog: the Sports Law Canary (previously syndicated through the Guardian Newspaper Sports Network) and the peer-reviewed student journal: The Laws of the Game. He has also acted as an Associate Editor for Common Ground Publishing.
