    Specialises in charity law, property, employment law. Debra’s research has focused on many different aspects of charity law and regulation, ranging
    from the ‘public benefit’ test through to the regulation of fundraising. Debra’s work on charity mergers and acquisitions and the resolution of disputes in the charitable sector
    was carried out in close consultation with the charitable sector and this approach helps to ensure that the recommendations are pertinent and useful to charities. Debra has
    also published on the legal position of private schools and not-for-profit hospitals. Debra is currently examining the impact of the Equality Act 2010 on charities.
