I spent seven years in teaching before moving into training at both NATFHE and the NUT. I subsequently went on to practise as a barrister, specialising in criminal and employment law. From 1989 to 2000 I taught employment law, advocacy, remedies, negotiation, drafting and case preparation at the Inns of Court Law School (ICSL), and became the Director of the Bar Vocational Course.
As well as my training activities, I edit and write for various publications. Most recently, I have produced Blackstone’s Employment Tribunal Handbook (OUP 2014). I am the author of the Guide to the Age Discrimination Regulations (Tottel, 2006), Employment Law and Practice (Sweet and Maxwell, 2007) and A Practical Approach to Criminal Procedure (OUP 15th ed 2015). I am responsible for the Employment Law Section in the Accountants’ Legal Service (Bloomsbury) and have also written extensively on Criminal Procedure. Details of my most recent publications are to be found on my website www.johnsprack.co.uk.
I have had 14 years’ experience in the Tribunals as an Employment Judge.
