College sets bailiffs on history lecturer

July 30, 1999

Cambridge University is to send bailiffs to the home of history lecturer Gill Evans (below) to collect almost Pounds 10,000 of legal costs.

Dr Evans, who earns Pounds 29,000 a year, has represented herself against Cambridge in numerous court battles as part of her campaign to reform the university's procedures for promoting academic staff. She recently lost a call for an injunction to prevent her faculty committee considering her case for a promotion and had costs awarded against her.

Her offer to make a payment to a student hardship fund has been declined.
