Sue has led the Law Centre since 2004 and is responsible for the effective   strategic  management, development and leadership of the Law Centre .   Previously, she was Director  of Operations at Heart of England Housing Group, a  housing association in Stratford upon  Avon, and Head of Housing Management   and Neighbourhood and Community Services at  Coventry City Council.

Matthew Smerdon, Chief Executive of The Legal Education Foundation said of   Sue: “Sue is a true radical in the sense that she seeks to deal with root causes. She combines an unshakeable sense of mission with robust evidence and hard graft. In   some ways, her best invention is that she knows that sometimes the answer is   about applying common sense to systems and services that have become anything   but. This requires Sue’s special type of leadership, gathering the different people   and organisations needed to challenge how things are done and to show how they  could be done better.”
