Graham Gee is Professor of Public Law at the University of Sheffield, having previously spent seven years at the University of Birmingham. Much of his teaching and research is focused on the changing nature and character of the UK constitution, as well as changes to the governance, leadership, and selection of the judiciary in England and Wales.
Graham’s work on the judiciary has been cited by, among others, the Lord Chief Justice, the Chief Justice of Canada, the Ministry of Justice, the Judicial Appointments Commission, and the House of Lords Constitution Committee. Before pursuing an academic career, he qualified as a solicitor at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in London.
In 2016, Graham sat (at the invitation of the Lord Chancellor) on the panel that recommended candidates for selection as the UK judge on the European Court of Human Rights. He is the author (with Robert Hazell, Kate Malleson, and Patrick O'Brien) of The Politics of Judicial Independence in the UK's Changing Constitution (Cambridge University Press, 2015).
