Dr. Lida Pitsillidou

Dr. Lida Pitsillidou is currently a Lecturer in Company Law and Corporate Governance at the University of Central Lancashire – Cyprus (UCLan Cyprus). Her research and teaching interests lie primarily in the areas of Company Law and Corporate Governance, particularly on issues of minority shareholder protection and directors’ duties. She is currently acting as the LLB Course Leader and Research Degree Tutor.

Prior to joining UCLan Cyprus’ Law School, she worked as a Teaching Fellow in Commercial Law at Newcastle University (2014-16) and a part-time Teaching Assistant at the same institution (2011-2014). She holds an LLB (Hons) from the University of Sunderland, an LLM in International Business and Commercial Law from the University of Manchester, and a PhD from Newcastle University. Her current research focuses on the recent developments of the law of multiple derivative actions in the UK, where she explores various justifications behind allowing such actions. Dr. Pitsillidou has presented her research at a variety of leading legal academic conferences and research seminars, such as the annual conferences organised by the Society of Legal Scholars (SLS) and the Socio-Legal Studies Association (SLSA).

Aside from her passion in the areas of Company Law and Corporate Governance, she is always keen to explore and learn about legal education and student learning. As a result, she co-authored an article based on the educational impact of student law reviews in the UK, which was published in print by The Law Teacher in 2017.

She is a member of the Society of Legal Scholars, the Socio-Legal Studies Association and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). In addition, she is a founding member/director of ICLAIM.  You can view her full academic profile at https://www.uclancyprus.ac.cy/academic/dr-lida-pitsillidou/.
