Shelagh Gaskill

We are very sorry to have to report the death, on 30 April, of Mrs Shelagh Gaskill, former Lecturer in the Department of Law. Shelagh Gaskill entered the Department as a mature student in 1975, having previously worked for a number of organisations, including the National Association for Mental Health and Citizens' Advice Bureaux, and having gained a University Extension Certificate in Psychology. Graduating in 1978, she was appointed to a lectureship in the following year and continued in this capacity until 1984. Her cheerful temperament and her easy familiarity with the subjects she taught made her popular with her peers and students alike. On her move into practice, Shelagh Gaskill continued for several years to teach in the Department on a part-time basis, whilst going on to establish herself as a widely recognised authority on the law on Data Protection.
