Ruth Onafuye

I am a PhD student at the University of Greenwich, studying the use of surveillance technologies (CCTV cameras) in care homes and how legislation guides homes on the lawful and effective use of these technologies. I completed my LLB, at the University of Wales, shortly after completing my LLM in International Commercial Law at Kingston University. I am also a qualified teacher, after obtaining my PGCE with the University of East London (UEL). I then went onto to teach legal studies and business administration at Havering College.
