The director of the Institute of Professional Legal Studies (IPLS) at Queen’s University Belfast has been recognised in the King’s birthday honours list.

Professor Barbara Jemphrey has been named Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to education.

She joined the IPLS in 2001 after 12 years working as a solicitor, both in a private practice and in-house. She was appointed as a senior lecturer in 2007 and then as director in June 2019.

Queen’s vice-chancellor Professor Sir Ian Greer said: “I would like to offer my congratulations to the Queen’s staff and those in our wider university community who have been recognised in this year’s birthday honours — this is a testament to their hard work and dedication in their respective fields.

“These colleagues are helping to shape a better world by driving forward our university’s work in changing lives for the better by providing educational opportunities, driving prosperity, and finding solutions to the many major and existential challenges facing our communities and the wider world since 1845.”
