Dr. Tass Hussain
I joined Blackburn College in 2000 teaching law in the Higher Education Centre, which became the East Lancashire Institute for Higher Education, now known as UCBC. Over the years I have taught many different areas of the law on a number of different programmes including Law, Criminology, Housing, Public Services and CILEX, my specialist teaching areas being Constitutional & Administrative law, Law of Tort, Criminal Evidence and Human Rights Law. I have been course leader for a number of different programmes and currently lead the LLM Masters in Law at UCBC.
Teaching law has been a directional change for me as prior to joining the college I served with the Royal Air Force for 14 years, which not only involved active service during the Falklands war and the first Gulf war, but also enabled me to play cricket against County and International teams during my military service. This was followed by working for the Trading Standards Service for 4 years before taking up a full time post with the college. I am very passionate about teaching and my philosophy is that “the day I come to college not caring about students, I will return home and retire”.
