Pat was nominated by his colleagues in the School of Law. Below, they share why Pat is so deserving of this acknowledgement.

"With a few hours to move the entire operation online, the School of Law transitioned seamlessly online, thanks to Pat’s leadership, anticipation and foresight. He anticipated the lockdown by providing training and online resources on the use of Panopto, video conferencing, FileSender, etc. He digitised and streamlined manual processes through Google Forms and SharePoint. Thanks to Pat, we all left campus on 12 March, fully-equipped with laptops, trained on Teams, and ready for remote-working! He has been unstinting in his availability – late evenings and throughout weekends. This was all carried out with great patience and Pat’s habitual calm demeanour!"
